HERSHEY, Pa.--A Xerox Corporation grant to PBS will make possible 
26-week film series. WITF (33) will televise "Film Odyssey" Saturday 
evenings at 8:00 beginning January 15. 

Each movie in the Xerox-funded collection was chosen because of 
its impact on the development of the film medium. The movies reflect 
specific contributions to the growth of film as an art form by such world 
renowned directors as Sweden's Ingmar Bergman, France's Francois 
Truffaut, and Germany's Josef von Sternberg. 

In the German-made "The Blue Angel," which made Marlene 
Dietrich an international star in 1930, von Sternberg introducted harsh 
realism to the movies. The story tells of the moral and mental degradation 
of a college professor under the influence of a cafe performer. This film 
will be televised January 22. 

All movies in the series will be televised in their original uncut ver- 
sion, with soundtracks intact. Superimposed English sub-titles will trans- 
late the dialogue of the foreign films.

ANNVILLE, Pa.-- Dr. Jacob L. Rhodes, chairman of the Faculty 
and Staff Solicitation Program, reported that the faculty and staff have 
oversubscribed their goal of $40,000 by $583. This amount represents 
more than one percent of the total needs for the $4 million Fund for 
Fulfillment underway here. 

Mr. Robert Wonderling, Director of Development, stated that this 
amount subscribed, plus the annual giving of the faculty and staff, re- 
presented a total amount which more than doubled any previous giving 
by the faculty and staff in the history of Lebanon Valley College.

ANNVILLE, Pa.-Lou Sorrentino has announced the results of the elec- 
tion for team captains for the 1972-1973 season. 

Walt Frankowski, Jim Iatesta, and Tony Calabrese were voted by their 
teammates to captain the squad. 

Frankowski finished the 1971 season as the top running back on the

Elections were held last week for the 
Student Government Review Committee. 
The primary function of the Commit- 
tee is to make a thorough study of the 
student government setup as it now ex- 
ists and recommend changes to be ap- 
proved by the administration, faculty, 
and students. 

When the present student govern- 
ment system was established it was de- 
cided to allow it to have a trial period 
of three years after which modifications 
could be made to adjust to the chang- 
ing atmosphere of the college. The com- 
mittee will meet in working sessions, 
probably beginning this month and cul- 
minating in April or May with a final 
report. It is expected that the main 
committee will meet for at least two 
hours every week throughout this period. 
In addition there will be various subcom- 
mittee meetings to work on different as- 
pects of the student government situa- 

There are three alternatives that the 
committee can choose to follow in the 
final report. It can recommend that the 
present system be retained as it is now, 
move to abolish the entire system and 
initiate a totally new one, or propose 
modifications in the present setup. Al- 
thoegh it does have the power to make 
radical changes in the system it is ex- 
pected that it will follow the third al- 
ternative and recommend modifications. 

The committee will be chaired by

On Monday, January 3, 1972, the 
Student Building Committee reported to 
President Sample on its recommendation 
for "The Fence." The Committee reaf- 
firmed that it should be removed from 
the front and side of the College Cen- 
ter-the only remaining part would be 
the section in the back along the park- 
ing area to the service entrance. 

The committee then proposed the 
following locations for the fence: 

1 . Athletic Field-in place of the wire 
fence running behind the visitor's stands. 

2. Bank above railroad tracks-campus 
side of the tracks. 

3. Anywhere else -on the Athletic 

The Committee reached the above lo- 
cations because of two basic feelings. 
First, the Committee rejected as unsight- 
ly the idea of placing small sections of 
fence all over campus to protect grass. 
Second, the style of the fence does not 
co-ordinate with the style of campus ar- 
chitecture. Hence, the Athletic Field 
would be the best location. 

The Committee also suggested that 
part of the grass area beside the College 
Center parking lot be converted into an- 
other entrance/exit to the lot. 

The President then gave his initial re- 
actions to the suggestions. First, he felt 
that the wire fence has no purpose since 
it was originally a boundary marker. The 
College has since purchased that piece of 
property. The President said he would 
consult with the Athletic Department 
about other locations. 

At the end of the meeting, President 
Sample said he would deliberate and re- 
lay his more-thought-out impressions to 
the Committee. He did point out that 
the spring rains were coming and the grass 
should be given a chance to grow. 

President Sample and will consist of 
three administrators -Dean Ehrhart, Dean 
Faust, and Mr. Paul Pickard; two faculty 
members-Mr. John Norton and Mr. Leon 
Markowicz; and seven student represen- 
tatives-Fran Stachow, Student Council; 
Howie Chwatt, Student Senate; Dave 
Snyder, Executive Committee; Bill Sny- 
der, Dorm Counselor; Jan Creeger, Sen- 
ior-at-large; Tony Leach, Junior-at-large; 
and Jill Rouke, Sophomore-at-large. 

Whatever the committee decides in 
its deliberations, it cannot ignore the pro- 
gress made by the present student gov- 
ernment. For instance, there is no more 
s and sign-outs in the girls' dorms 
and no curfews. Although these may 
sound trivial to freshmen they are major 
breakthroughs-as many seniors will at-

The following study was part of a 
project for a course taken by Linda M. 
Holubowicz at the Middletown campus 
of Penn State. It was prepared in order 
to statistically prove the theory that 
there is a need for sex education and/or 


preventive measures on our college cam- 

The survey was undertaken at Leba- 
non Valley College after securing the con- 
sent of the Dean of Men and the Dean of 
Women. Forms were distributed to two 
men's dorms and three women's. One of 
219 copys handed out to girls, 136 were 
returned (62%). The men returned 208 
out of 242 or 86%. 

The following are selected results of 
the survey. Because of space considera- 
tions not all of the questions are given 
and the "no answers" and those answers 
given by only a few are not included.

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE is published bi-weekly by the students of Lebanon Val- 
ley College except during examination periods and vacations. LA VIE is printed by 
Boy or Press, Lebanon, Pa. Newspaper offices are located in the College Center, low- 
er level. Telephone— 867-3561, ext. 316. Subscriptions are available for $2.50 per 
semester. The opinions expressed in the newspaper are those of the editors, and do 
not rep r es e nt the official opinion of the college. 

When second semester opens the first issue of La Vie will feature 
articles written by members of the administration, faculty and student 
body answering the question "What changes would you like to see at 
Lebanon Valley College?" 

This special issue was planned to co-ordinate with the Middle States 
evaluation and the review of Student Government. Since the Middle 
States meetings were largely closed (we have not yet gained permission 
to print any of the reports) and the Student Government Review has 
not yet gotten underway, La Vie asked the above question with the hope 
of arousing some thought and discussion-not just among the writers, 
but more importantly among the college as a whole. There are certainly 
many areas at Lebanon Valley College that should be examined in terms: 
of changes that could be made. 

Each contributor was given a minimum of instructions; the specific 
subject as well as the length was left to his own discretion. This was 
done for three basic reasons. First, it is easier to write about something 
that is personally important. Second, we did not want the field of in- 
quiry limited by one perception of the question. In other words, we 
felt that there is a profit in obtaining a wide variety of responses. Third, 
it was hoped that any areas that overlapped-were mentioned by several 
individuals-would indicate particularly important subjects. 

There is also another reason for this special issue. La Vie has been 
struggling for several years, at first, simply to publish on a regular 
schedule and then to increase the depth of news coverage of campus 
events. We have been hampered by the same old problems: lack of 
staff and lack of time. La Vie is not satisfied with the progress we have 
made. The upcoming special issue is an attempt to continue expanding. 
A past editor saw this newspaper's purpose "primarily as a platform for 
the presentation and challenging of ideas." With our next issue we 
hope to present some ideas in more depth than would be otherwise 

NOTE-The plans for the new music building are proceeding toward 
completion. It has been reported to La Vie that it has been recommended 
that no stage equipment be installed in the proposed 600-seat auditorium. 

It is well-known that there has been some friction between the Music 
Department and those involved in dramatics. It would be unfortunate 
if intra-campus squabbles were to prevent the implementation of the 
course of action most beneficial to the entire campus. 

The Student Building Committee has, thus far, had no part in any 
decisions concerning the building. It is, therefore, the responsibility 
and the right of individual students to make their feelings known to the 
administration-before plans are finalized. 




Letters To The Editor 

To the Editor: 

A simple idea. Once our school raised 
some food for the people in Cairo, 
Illinois. What we did was to get four or 
five people to go out and get signatures 
of the students, in signing the students 
were pledging to give up one of their 
meals on a certain night. For each sig- 
nature the food service turned over that 
persons portion of food to the group 
that was handling the collection. Out of 
the 700 that eat in the cafeteria, 400 
signed, thus raising a lot of food. 

We now are trying to get people to 
sign giving up one meal a week for the 
remainder of the year. We shall use the 
food to give to one or two of the many 
worthwhile organizations that help people 
who for some reason are in desperate 
need. There are seemingly many worth- 
while organizations. 

It seems that a very large school 
could raise hundreds of pounds of food 
each week, and set up some creative pro- 
gram in distributing the food. We really 
didn't expect people to really fast, most 
just went out to eat somewhere else. 
There are many things that could be done 
with large supplies of food, especially 
that already canned. 

Last summer I became acquainted 
with a seemingly very worth while pro- 
gram. The program involves the leaving of 
one's eyes upon death to the blind, so 
that they may have sight. If one would 
be interested in doing this they would 
need to write away for information at 
one of two places: the Lions Club Eye 
Donor Program, or any Eye-Bank. One 
or both of these places could be found 
in any of the fairly large cities. Youll 
have to get out the old phone book and 
check it out. To my knowledge the eyes 
are given totally free to those in need, and 
without any discrimination whatsoever.

College Recruits New Faculty 

by Evelyn Nottingham 

One of three new English professors 
at LVC this year, Leon Markowicz ma- 
jored in philosophy, classics, and Eng- 
lish at Duquense University, Pittsburgh 
(1960-64), and did post-graduate work in 
theology at St. Mary's Seminary, Nor- 
walk, Connecuicut (1964-Dec.l966). He 
received his masters in English from 
the University of Pennsylvania in May 
1969 where he has also taught. Present- 
ly he is working on his doctual disserta- 
tion, which is a translation and evalu- 
ation of eight Latin letter concerning 
the legality and morality of drama at 
Oxford in 1953. 

Mr. Markowicz was attracted to LVC 

because of its small size, a factor which 
he feels should help to encourage inno- 
vation and close student-teacher relation- 
ships. He feels that the size of LVC 
"should allow for greater flexibility in 
course offerings." Mr. Markowicz would 
also like to see the students develop a 
desire to read and to learn on their own. 
He has encouraged independent work 
in his own 17th Century English class by 
allowing the students three weeks to 
study Paradise Lost on their own and 
then give reports to the class; he would 
also like to extend independent work 
into his other present courses-Compara- 
tive Literature and Freshman English, 
and into his next semestet courses- 
Comparative Literature, Freshman Eng- 
lish, and Chaucer. Although Mr. Mar- 
kowicz views the students' "grade con- 
sciousness" as a natural reaction to pres- 
sure from a competitive job-oriented 
society, he would still like to see students 
with more of a desire to learn "for 
learning's sake" than to obtain good 

Mr. Markowicz lives in Annville with 
his wife who is presently employed by 
Consult Inc., Lebanon. He enjoys a wide 
range of activities including all sports. 

by Sally Wiest 

Each school has its own drawing card, 
some have location or ivy folliage in 
their favor while others get the job done 
in a smaller more personalized atmos- 
phere. According to Dr. Bryan Hearsey, 
the new assistant professor in the Math- 
ematics Department, "I chose Lebanon 
Valley because I like the small school 
better than the large." Originally from 
Washington State University where he 
was assistant professor before going on 
to teach at the University of Florida for 


three years. 

Hearing about this teaching vacancy 
through Dr. Mayer, Mathematics Depart' 
ment chairman, Dr. Hearsey has much 
the same philosophy for teaching-name- 
ly: have the student think for himself- 
This is not just applied to the classroom 
but to any activity or program. Dr. Hea 1 ' 
sey says that the student needs to take 2 
more active interest in what goes on a ' 
round him and get rid of this genera 1 
apathetic mood. 

Besides his interest in mathemati cS 
and his membership in the America 11 
Mathematics Society and the Mathernf 
tical Society of America, Dr. Hearsey h aS 
an active interest in skiing, golf, afl 
bridge. Also, he and his wife, Caroly"' 
have a two year old daughter, Stacie.

Here are short reviews of some albums 
that you might have received over the 
holidays. Most of these were issued be- 
fore Christmas (in fact, they all were),but 
too late to be reviewed at that time. 
There are several good records here. Pay 

The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, 
by Traffic (Island SW 9306): It's a mite 
unusual for me to write about Traffic 
having only one of their previous albums 
(the recent Live at The Canteen on Uni- 
ted Artists). I like listening to their ear- 
lier releases, but never quite enough to 
fork over four-plus dollars apiece for 
them. This one is different, an attractive 
album of good, loose, jazzy music done 
with fine attention to detail often lack- 
ln g in their earlier releases. The reason 
behind this is, Ayuite simply, that this is 
n °t the same group as the old Traffic. 
Traffic is now a six-member band rather 
than three as on the last Traffic studio 
fibum. Three of the four original mem- 
bers are present (Winwood, Capaldi, and 
Wood; sadly, no Dave Mason as on Can- 
ee «) plus the three new members intro- 
" ced 0n Canteen, Jim Gordon, an ex- 
f Omino on drums, (Capaldi now per- 
il* 1118 solel y as a vocalist and tambour- 
ed. 13 ^' Rick Grech, ex-Family and

both, especially on the title track and 
the rocking "Light Up or Leave Me A- 
lone". The other tracks are equally well 
done, and add up to the first truly sat- 
isfying Traffic album ever. A must for 
any collection. Get The Low Spark of 
High Heeled Boys. 

Madman Across the Water, by Elton 
John (Uni 93120): Elton John seems to 
be getting better all the time. His first 
album revealed a talent for intelligent and 
truly beautiful composition and playing, 
as well as establishing Bernie Taupin as 
one of pop/rock music's premier lyricists, 
rivaling Keith Reid of Procol Harum, the 
Grateful Dead's Robert Hunter, Paul 
McCartney, and Van Dyke Parks, who 
may be remembered for his excellent 
work in conjunction with the Beach Boys' 
Brian Wilson. It was marred, however, by 
cliched orchestral accompaniments and a 
general lack of expertise which belied 
Elton's superstar hupe. The album was 
listenable, but exhibited no true high 
points. His next two albums, Tumble- 
weed Connection and the soundtrack 
for the movie Friends, were advances in 
both technique and execution, and offer- 
ed some true high spots, notably "Burn 
Down the Mission" on Tumbleweed and

which John and Taupin found them-

(Continued from Page 3, Col. 2) 

the country-folk movement in music, 
which was already overcrowded, des- 
pite the fact that Elton's musical roots 
were firmly planted in mainline pop and 
rock and roll. Too much gunfighting and 
country comfort resulted in a lot of only 
partially deserved bad press. 

Assuming that the semi-live 11/17/70 
was a throwaway (which it was both mu- 
sically and conceptually), the progress 
John and Taupin have been making is 
full realized in Madman Across the Wa- 
ter. It is the ultimate development of 
their style and form. Elton's piano is 
uniformly brilliant on all the cuts, and 
his backing of orchestration and various 
studio rockers (Caleb Quayle, Nigel Ols- 
sen, Dee Murray, Rick Wakeman, and 
others) is a fine balance of richness and 
restraint. Elton's voice soars triumphant- 
ly on all of the cuts, especially the title 
cut, the quietly elated "Tiny Dancer", 
the vengeful "Rotten Peaches" (one of 
the better prison songs in a long while), 
and my personal favorite, the happy /sad 
"Levon". The uniform high quality of 
this album is remarkable, better than any 
of his previous releases and better than 
many of the past year's releases by other 
reputable groups and artists. The over- 
whelming countrification that suggocated 
most of Tumbleweed Connection is ab- 
sent. After Madman Across the Water, 
the only problem remaining is how in the 
world Elton John and Bernie Taupin will 
follow it up. 

Here are a few lines on some records 
of merit, both positive and negative. 

Gonna Take a Miracle , by Laura Nyro 
and Labelle (Columbia KC 30987): Whe- 
ther or not you like this album depends 
upon your stance toward soul music ra- 
ther than Laura Nyro. She and Labelle 
(three black women singing harmonies 
a la Chiffons, Vandellas etc.) perform 
covers of many favorite AM soul hits 
herein. The arrangements, performed by 
many talented side men, really cook, 
and the resultant music loses little in the 
transition from Motown to Fun City. 
Not typical Laura Nyro, obviously. But 
very nice. 

Electric Warrior, by T. Rex (Reprise 
RS 6466): I don't own this one yet but 
I'd like to very much. Former cosmic 
folkie Marc Bolan and his hired hench- 
men herein parody mid-Sixties punk-rock 
similarto Dave Clark Five, middle period 
Kinks, Turtles, etc.; funny and engrossing 
nostalgia trip is the result. Ever heard a 
1971 car song? Album includes perfor- 
mances by former-Turtles-turned- Mo- 
thers Mark Volman and Howie Kaylan. 
Get it on. 

Meddle, by Pink Floyd (Harvest SMAS 
832): OH MY GOD! ! ! ! ! ! Cosmic. 

Lost In the Ozone, by Commander 
Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen (Para- 
mount PAS-6017): I can't understand 
why all the rock publications are nutty 
about this album. Other than some nice 
pedal steel and piano, plus the classic 
"Hot Rod Lincoln", this is just another 
album of second-rate country /western by 
third rate rockers. Pocb, the Flying Bur- 
rito Bros., and the New Riders of the 
Purple Sage do it much better. Not to 
mention the Band. 

That's all for now. In the next La Vie: 
How to build your post-1965 Beach Boys 
collection, plus Imagine after the new 
wears off, new Alice Cooper, Wings, and 
maybe even Bangla Desh.

At the midpoint of the 1971-72 bas- 
ketball season, it appears that the Flying 
Dutchmen are well on their way to cap- 
turing their second straight MAC South- 
ern Division championship, as they re- 
main undefeated in conference play with 
an overall record of 10 wins and 2 losses. 
In games played just before the Christ- 
mas holidays, the team came back from 
a ten-point halftime deficit to down Up- 
sala, 73-67, and two nights later over- 
whelmed Juniata by the score of 90-66. 
Don Johnson led the Dutchmen in both 
games with 18 and 19 points respective- 
ly. During the vacation, the team finished 
second in the Central Bucks Tournament 
at Doylestown, downing Ursinus 70-53 
in the opener after losing most of an 
eleven-point lead late in the first half. 
However, the following night Glassboro 
State (who knocked last year's team out 
of the same tournament) ended the 
Dutchmen's seven game win streak by 
the score of 65-59. Johnson tallied 34 
points in the two games, followed by 
Kris Linde and George Petrie with 27 and 
Bill Ammons with 26. 

Returning to Annville in January, the 
team had a mild scare in its rematch with 
Ursinus, as the visitors scored the first 
seven points of the game. Holding Val- 
ley scoreless for nearly five minutes un- 
til Johnson finally broke the ice. The 
Dutchmen got back in the game quickly, 
and took the lead for good on two bas- 
kets by Linde near the middle of the first 
half. The Dutchmen carried a 35-28 lead 
into the locker room, but Ursinus fought 
back stubbornly in the second half, stay- 
ing well within striking range until the 
the late stages of the game, as the Dutch- 
men scored twelve of the final thirteen 
points. The final score was Lebanon Val- 
ley 70, Ursinus 55, with Johnson high 
man for the Dutchmen with 18 points. 

On January 8, the team traveled to 
Reading for a key game with Albright 
and came home with a 65-61 win. The 

Dutchmen got off to a quick 8-3 lead, 
but the Lions fought back just as quick- 
ly to tie the game at 14. Johnson and 
Petrie then scored to again give Valley 
the lead, which they held until late in the 
half, when the Lions ran off six straight 
points to take a 27-26 lead. Baskets by 
Chip Etter and Johnson were neutralized 
as Albright scored the last four points of 
the half to take a 31-30 lead. The second 
half was a seesaw affair, as Ammons (des- 
pite drawing his fourth foul near the 11- 
minute mark of the half), Johnson, and 
Linde carried the scoring load to keep 
Valley in contention. Finally, consecutive 
baskets by Johnson and Ammons gave 
the Dutchmen the lead at 51-48, and 
Albright was unable to go ahead after 
that, although the outcome was in doubt 
until the end. Kris Linde led the attack 
with 19 points, followed closely by Am- 
mons and Johnson with 18 each. 

Last Tuesday, however, the Dutch- 
men almost ran into disaster at the hands 
of an inspired Moravian team. In a fast- 
moving first half, the Greyhounds played 
like anything but a 3-5 team, and it was 
all the Dutchmen could manage to go in- 
to the second half with a 36-36 deadlock. 
But after that it was a different story. 
Johnson hit on a three-point play at the 
start of the half and the Dutchmen never 
relinquished the lead, later scoring seven 
straight points to take a 56-46 lead, As 
the game ended, the team was red-hot, 
outscoring Moravian 24-8 in the final 
part of the half for a 97-70 victory. 
Johnson and Linde again led the way for 
the Dutchmen's high-powered attack, 
which also saw Chip Etter and Ed Ian- 
nerella break into double figures. Pete 
Harubin also did a good job, contributing 
8 second-half points and numerous re- 
bounds while filling in for Ammons, who 
was again plagued by foul trouble. 

In February the Dutchmen will seek 
to continue their winning ways against 
Franklin & Marshall on the road before 
coming home to face Johns Hopkins, 
Muhlenberg, and Washington. 

Donnie Johnson shoots for two, while Bill Ammons waits for the possible rebound.

Doren Leathers attempts to take down his Elizabethtown opponent in a match 
that unfortunately ended in a 35-0 loss for the Valley. 


by Mike Rhodes 

Despite some fine individual efforts, 
the Lebanon Valley wrestling team has 
had some rough gi ing as of late. After 
compiling a respectable 2-2 record dur- 
ing the early part of the season, the team 
hosted Swarthmore on December 14. 
Highlights of the match included an im- 
pressive 10-0 decision by Steve Grove 
(126) and, in the 167-lb. class, Freshman 
Chet Mosteller's first collegiate fall. How- 
ever, these efforts (along with a draw by 
heavyweight John Fechisin and a forfeit 
victory by Jay Catherman) were not quite 
enough to avert a 30-18 loss, the margin 
of victory resulting from two weight 
classes in which LVC was forced to for- 

The following Saturday the college 
sponsored a seven-team invitational tour- 
nament which was won by York College, 
whose grapplers were victorious in six 
of the ten weights. Leading the way for 

the Dutchmen were Mosteller, Guy Les- 
ser, Grove, Catherman, and Fechisin, who 
all finished fourth in their respective di- 
visions. But the only two victories for 
the Dutchmen came in the preliminary 
round, as Lesser escaped with a 2-1 de- 
cision and Mosteller blanked his oppo- 
nent, 5-0. 

After returning from vacation, the 
team journeyed to Bethlehem on Janu- 
ary 8 only to suffer a 36-6 loss at the 
hands of Moravian. The only bright 
moments for Lebanon Valley fans came 
when Chet Mosteller convincingly defeat- 
ed Paul Chowansky, 13-4. For Lesser, 
the victory was his fourth of the year 
against only one defeat, while Mosteller 
leads the team with a fine 5-1 record. 
Following the semester break, the wrest- 
lers resume action with home matches 
against Johns Hopkins (Feb. 3) and 
Dickinson (Feb. 5).

A La Vie Collegienne Special 



by Bill Morrison 

Several weeks ago I was asked to 
write an article concerning what I 
would like to see changed at Leb- 
anon Valley. Immediately, thoughts 
flashed into my mind in a collage which 
quite boggled me. Realizing that if I was 
to get my thoughts across to others, I 
would have to organize them. First, I 
thought of listing everything from 1 
through 100. Next, I thought of asking 
for a special issue of my own. I even 
thought of changing my name to Ben 
Neideigh and writing it in "The Fyre- 

syde Chat." Finally, I decided to examine 
the three main groups of the college 
"family" (no-not the Father, the Son, 
and the Holy Ghost) separately, sug- 
gesting changes for each. 

Beginning with the faculty, I realized 
that I was in a position where I could be 
very vulnerable to retaliation; therefore, 
this section will be brief. The main thing 
which bothers me about the faculty is 
that there is no way for them to know 
the true student sentiment toward them 
concerning their teaching ability. Present- 
ly, a professor can pass off an individual 
complaint as being the opinion of only 
one student which may not be shared by 
the rest of his peers. Many students won't 
even speak up to a professor for fear they 
may cause ill feelings which could ruin 
the rapport which exists between them 
and the professor. This silence is some- 
times interpreted by some members of 
the faculty as a silent approval by the 
students for their teaching practices. 
Therefore, there must be some way for 
the students to let the faculty members 
know where they're falling short. Ob- 
viously, anonymity must be perserved. 
Also, a complete consensus must be 
voiced. Therefore, I propose an annual 
faculty rating questionaire to be filled 
out be all students. 

Next a few comments about the stu- 

by Dr. Arthur L. Ford 

When first invited to discuss the 
topic of changes needed at Lebanon 
Valley, my first reaction was: Where 
do I begin? During the past seven 
years I have argued in these pages, on 
panel discussions, in faculty meetings, 
and in administrative offices for changes 
in chapel policy, in social regulations on 
campus, in the auxiliary schools, in the 
honors program, in the newspaper, in 
academic requirements, ad infinitum. 
Here then was still one more chance to 
take a cheap shot. 

Tempting as this is, however, I decided 
instead to list a few things at Lebanon 
Valley which I would not like to see 
changed. First-and at the risk of ap- 
pearing to go over to the other side -is 
the president. We have disagreed on 
many things (several are listed above), 
but he has been open and honest, and 
that is rare in any administrator. I was 
amused at a student complaint listed in 
this paper some months back that the 
president takes unfair advantage of the 
students in debate because he is logical 
and uses language well. I am not disturbed 
by criticism of the president, even when 
't is my own. It is in the nature of his 
of fice that he be criticised, and it is in 
the nature of his office that he appear at 
times to be the adversary of both stu- 
dents and faculty. As an adversary he has 
been firm but flexible; as a colleague he 

as been sympathetic and encouraging. 

tell ° nly ma '' 0r weakness ' so far as 1 can

Second, I would not like to see this 
^culty change, (with a few exceptions) 
re gener al, they are teaching rather than 
^search oriented, and I prefer it that 
ay. Their concern for students is con-

dents -of course this will be brief. The 
recent trend in student sentiment has 
been toward more concern and involve- 
ment. However, our student body still 
has a lot to be desired. It's the age old 
sermom on apathy -you can't change a 
damn thing by sittin' on your ass. Don't 
think 10 or 20 people are going to change 
anything, either. Numbers count!!! So 
become informed and be there when you 
are needed. 

Another point for the students is a 
challenge which I put to everyone: how 
can a small church-related college in a 
rural white conservative Republican area 
take part in national and world-wide 
politics? The racial problem, Viet Nam, 
Women's Lib, the American Indian, the 
foreign policy of the United States, slums, 
government corruption, and welfare rights 
to name only a few. I wish I had an 

So, I arrive at the third and final 
member of the "family "-the Administra- 
tion. In this section, I will include the 
Trustees. The membership on the Board 
of Trustees should be changed -drastical- 
ly. The present membership is approxi- 
mately 35 voting members-24 are. ap- 
pointed by the church conferences, 10 
are from faculty and alumni, and the 
President of the College. Thus the church

One who has known Lebanon 
Valley College for ten, twenty, 
forty, or sixty years finds little dif- 
ficulty in reciting changes that have 
occurred on our campus. Much 
pleasure is enjoyed in telling the tales of 
yesterday and in taking some credit for 
the progress toward today. That pleasure 
should not be denied anyone who has 
known and loved the College. 

Reciting the dreams and desires for 
tomorrow is also a pleasure, however 
much that recitation is associated with 
challenge, responsibility, and plain hard 
work. Many of my dreams have come 
true just within the past year or two. 
Many changes have taken place for better 
and for worse. Today's students, pro- 
grams and problems cannot be neglected 
as one dreams of improvements and 
changes, but neither can the future be 
denied as we are engaged in our daily 
obligations and responsibilities. 

Because my hopes for the future, both 
near and far future, seem to be endless, I 
shall concentrate on one. I recognize that 
the survival of Lebanon Valley College 
is confronted by an ever increasing num- 
ber of potential catastrophes in the same 
way as is the survival of our nation or

who have spent far more time and effort 
than is reasonable to help a student in 
serious academic or emotional difficulty. 
Unfortunately, the student body in gen- 
eral rarely hears of this. 

Third, I would not like to see the 
campus change, in spite of its eclectic 
architecture and leaky roofs. It has grass 
and trees and space and all those things 
which seem to be disappearing elsewhere. 
And it is small enough to retain a hu- 
man scale. Several years ago when asked 
the size of our student body, I would 
mumble under my breath, "Less than a 
thousand," and hope I would not be 
asked to repeat myself. Now I find it 
something i boast of. During the summer 
of 1970 I attended a meeting of educators 
where the problem of school size was dis- 
cussed. If only, they said, we could 
break our schools down into smaller, 
more workable units, we might be able 
once more to be innovative. The ideal 
size they suggested was a thousand stu- 
dents. I enjoy recognizing students out- 
side the classroom, even though I don't 
always bubble over with "Hi's." I en- 
joy being able to try a new idea without 
getting prior approval in triplicate from 
some IBM machine. 

I think I just set a personal record 
for most consecutive positive statements. 
Many changes at Lebanon Valley are 
needed, (There, I've just broken the 
string) and many are legitimately item- 
ized elsewhere in this issue. I must add, 
however, that the most important item 
at Lebanon Valley College which must 
not be changed is the possibility of 
change itself. I have complained and 
argued, exhorted and cajoled for various 
improvements precisely because the pos- 
sibility of improvement was there. If I 
had felt that change was impossible and 
if I had felt this school not worth the 
effort, I would have despaired long ago 
But change here does occur, slowly at 
times and not always the change we had 
fought for, but it does occur, and that 
must never change. 

by Dr. Joerg Mayer 

The very question which we try 
to answer implies that LVC is in 
need of change. And, certainly, we 
could improve the library, we could 
build more buildings, we could de- 
sign more interdepartmental courses, we 
could even do away with more or all 
requirements. But none of these and 
other changes which come to mind would 
get at the main problem at LVC. 

The main problem at present is the 
lack of academic involvement and schol- 
arly competition among the students 
and to a degree, among the faculty. In 
general, the students seem to me to lack 
initiative, motivation, intellectual curiosi- 
ty (to mention the old virtues of stu- 
dents) and active involvement (to men- 
tion the new virtue). Since I cannot 
believe that the percentage of active and 
academically involved students must by 
necessity be as low as it is here we must 
do all we can to improve the stature and 
quality of LVC in order to improve the 
student body. 

Obviously, the best way to attract 
better students is to improve the academ- 
ic program. I believe that the present 
faculty is already stretching its energies 
to the limit and I do not think that 
any shuffling of courses and of priorities 
is going to significantly improve the pro- 
gram at LVC. Rather, we need to develop 
all departments and their programs to 
the point where we can offer curricula 
similar to those offered at larger univer- 
sities, on the undergraduate level. This 
can only be done by enlarging the faculty 
which means that the number of students 
has to be increased. This can be done 
without sacrificing the present pleasant 
and uncomplicated atmosphere of a small 

No doubt, if we have 2000 students 
most departments can offer an under- 
graduate program comparable to most in 
the country. In that way we can com- 

bine the advantages of a small college 
with many of the advantages of a large 
university. While I am sure that the 
small college will survive I am somewhat 
pessimistic about the chances of the very 
small college (like ours) against the com- 
petition from the state schools. 

Even if the initial financial difficult- 
ies of enlarging the student body by 
such a big step prove it to be unrealistic 
we can increase the number of applicants 
from which we select our students by in- 
creasing the exposure of the college. 
One quick and effective way is to develop 
one sport (football or basketball) to a 
consistently high level. The headlines 
which the team would attract would cer- 
tainly be to the benefit of the whole 
school. Of course, such an aim can only 
be reached if we are willing to reserve 
several grants-in-aid each year. 

Another way to attract attention and 
hence good students is to have exciting 
and significant summer sessions. Every 
effort should be made to hold summer 
seminars and workshops, even on the 
graduate level. Also, we should revive the 
regular summer session and make it a 
model for other schools. 

Of course, there are many other 
changes which have been suggested. And 
I have previously provided a perhaps un- 
wisely large share of them; unwise, be- 
cause they were made under the assump- 
tion that with the proper arrangements a 
very small college can do the job of a 
small college. Having had a good look 
at what we are doing and what we could 
do I am convinced that a college of 1000 
students does not contain the critical 
mass needed to be really good. Twice 
the size should be enough and hence the 
most essential change I would like to see 
at LVC is that it reach a student popula- 
tion of about 2000 in ten years. And that 
with this growth we combine a careful 
development of all areas so that in ten 
years we are a small college which can be 
proud of all its students and all its acti- 

any other institution. In a practical way 
this confrontation makes it impossible 
to evolve one change without considera- 
tion of many others. Despite, however, 
my many desires and my recognition that 
a change does not occur in isolation, I 
shall focus on only one. In advance I 
plead guilty perchance to both oversim- 
plification and excessive idealism. 

A small college should take maximal 
advantage of its being small. So should 
it take maximal advantage of its being 
liberal arts, church-related, concerned for 
the intellectual and concerned for inter- 
personal relationships throughout the 
Campus. It appears to me that some- 
times, even many times, these advantages 
and concerns of LVC are cast to the 
winds as we kneel to the pressures and 
worship of credits, grades, grade point 
averages, examinations, deadlines, and 

Second, general education should be 
expected of all students. This general ed- 
ucation should be expressed in terms of 
goals and expectations, not in terms of 
credits. What level of literacy is expected 
in the social sciences, natural sciences, 
fine arts and humanities? What proficien- 
cy is expected in a foreign language? With 
expectations before the student at initial 
matriculation academic responsibility and 
freedom would be united immediately. 
The student would begin a pilgrimage 
toward expectations. Procedures would 
be determined, but they also could be 

The regular classroom program would 
be provided as an assistance toward the 
expectations, not as an end in itself. 
Sometimes the student would forego the 
assistance of the formal classroom in 
favor of the library or some other assis- 
tance. It would be necessary to deter- 
mine periodically the strengths and weak- 
nesses of a student. It would be most 
difficult to determine a person's having

the main problem at present is 
the lack of academic involve- 
ment and scholarly competition 
among the students, and to a 
degree, among the faculty.

In Explanation 

As an observant reader might notice, this issue does not contain 
the features which usually appear. This first issue of the new semester 
has been devoted to the following question: "What Changes Would You 
Like To See At Lebanon Valley College?" Answers to this question have 
been sought in all three branches of the college community-administra- 
tion, faculty, and student body. They cover a wide area of subject mat- 
ter and present sometimes conflicting views. It is hoped that this issue 
can aid in the development of some kind of creative thought on 
what each individual preceives to be the present problems and fu- 
ture promise of this college. 

This survey is intended to be a constructive one. It is our opinion 
that the contributors have based their criticism on an underlying de- 
sire to create in this institution a climate and system more conducive 
to learning. 

There is one major problem with this issue. To be of value it must 
be read. There are no cartoons; no easy-to-read features. The success of 
this issue depends on its being read— thoughtfully. 

Finally, I would like to thank those who have contributed their 
thoughts and, probably just as valuable, their time to this effort.

What I would like to see at LVC 
is a better student newspaper. La 
Vie offers us a fit or a start now 
and then (as perhaps with this issue) 
but it has generally gone downhill over 
the past years. Ideally, a student news- 
paper should report everything - or as 
much as possible - that is happening on 
campus and that is of interest to the 
students in general or to some significant 
group of students. Such reporting would 
necessarily be from the students' point 
of view, and, by its public and object- 
ive qualities, would provide the rest of 
the students with some real knowledge 
of what is going on around here. What a 
unifying influence that would be! Of 
course there is a place for editorializing 
and opining of one sort or another and 
for imaginative writing, but when they 
predominate, as they do in La Vie, 
there is no more justification for the 
newspaper's existence qua newspaper. 

But as long as the paper is run by 
students and for students and the stu- 
dents that it's run for and not by are 
not visibly protesting (except, perhaps, 
in their not reading it), I suppose a non- 
student has no business voicing object- 

by Candee Falloon 

I would like to discuss two ma- 
jor problems that LVC has that 
really create about 50 other pro- 

First is how money is spent here. 
This college has an awful lot of things 
which need improvement -some of the 
departments and their libraries could be 
improved, the athletic facilities are raun- 
chy and even more important is the 
quality of our library. But what does 
the President of our college do? He 
purchases for X thousands of dollars 
a fence. A beautiful gorgeous fence he 
hoped would stun the Middle States 
Evaluation Committee when they arrived 
here this spring. I'm sure if he would have 
been more concerned about the interior 
quality of the campus rather than the 
exterior, they would be more impressed. 
The money spent on that fence could 
have gone to more books, carpeting in 
the library or given to various depart- 
ments for improvements. I hate to think 
about the amount of money spent on 
that guest house -they could have been a 
lot more economical with their expendi- 
tures there also. 

And what about those dorm mothers? 
I'm sure their salaries could be put to 
better use elsewhere. I wonder how 
much they get paid besides their free 
room and board? I'm sorry, but they 
are ineffectual and unconcerned about 
women here as their overseer. I don't 
feel I should go into my feelings con- 


Dr. Frederick P. Sample, president, 
Lebanon Valley College, has announced 
that personal counseling on a limited 
basis will be available to students from 
9:30-12:30, Thursdays, beginning Feb- 
ruary 17. 

Counseling will be by appointment 
only. For further, information cantact 
the student deans, Dean Ehrhart, Dr. 
Bemesderfer, of any of the dormitory 

cerning Dean Faust— but let it suffice 
to say that is another improvement this 
college could make if they got rid of 
her, and in her place they hired a very 
compassionate, caring 'younger woman 
who would understand the needs of 
today's women. I see no reason at all 
for Dean Faust and her spies. I'm sure 
the dorm mothers are helpful to Dean 
Faust by keeping her informed on EV- 
ERYTHING that happens to EVERY- 
ONE— but they do very little for the 

the money spent on that fence 
could have gone to more books, 
carpeting in the library or given 
to various departments for 

---- candee falloon 

girls that they can't do for themselves 
and cheaper. 

And even when Valley does decide to 
put money to a good use-they blow it. 
Case in point is the new music building 
(You remember that one don't you-the 
once Fine Arts Building). Not only isn't 
it a Fine Arts Building anymore which 
would have been the sensible thing if 
they were looking ahead to the future 
and an expanding art department and 
perhaps a future drama department -but 
now it's a music building that has no 
plans for any stage equipment. Oh great. 
What are we supposed to do -live with 
that Little Theatre for another 20 years? 
At least they could transfer some of that 
expensive equipment out of the little 
theatre to the new stage. Lebanon Val- 
ley's dramatic and musical productions 
have gained wide recognition and we 
have no where to seat that recognition. 

This brings us to the other major 
fault here-student involvement. Now, 
a lot of the fault lies with the students 
themselves and their I don't care atti- 
tude, but the problem goes beyond the 
students. The problem is deeply ingrained 
in Lebanon Valley's attitude toward its 
students. Just how much say will that 
Building Committee have if they de- 
mand stage equipment in the Music 
Building? How much say did they have 
in the plans for the Student Center (Yes 
that's right -I called it Student Center, 
not college-Walt Smith Center). Very lit- 
tle I'm sure. How much say do students 

really have here when it comes to hearing 
their ideas about their dissatisfaction 
with Dean Faust or Walt Smith and the 
way the Student Center is run or how 
much say do they have in evaluating 
their professors? I've had some excellent 
courses here and there are quite a few 
excellent teachers. But there are also 
some that shouldn't be teaching college 
courses and their classes are not only a 
waste of time, but for 180 dollars you 
don't learn anything either. Perhaps the stu 
dents don't get involved since it's a losing 
battle right from the start. I feel the stu- 
dents should have more say concerning 
the STUDENT center, all the rules and 
regulations governing the student center, 
they should have some say in the quality 
of the courses that they have to pay for 
and there should be some provision for 
them to evaluate some of these raunchy 
courses and thereby get improved ser- 
vice from some of these teachers. If the 
administration wonders why there is 
so little involvement, maybe they should 
search their souls and ask if they would 
listen to the gripes and requests of the 
students to better this campus. 

Perhaps one way to alleviate the 
money problem and where it goes would 

be to set up a Priorities Council that would 
be composed ot Administration (Deans) 
faculty members and students chosen by 
the faculty to advise the president on 
needed expenditures and to see that the 
farce of the fence isn't repeated here. 
And perhaps the best way to conquer 
apathy would be if the administration 
and Board of Trustees would have more 
faith in the student voice and student 
power on this campus. Students have lit- 
tle power on this campus to right the 
wrongs and make changes. All that power 
is still in the hands of the administration.

ions. It's just that since La Vie has be- 
come a forum for the fa iciful, I know 
that I can express such a wish in its pages 
sans peur, as it were, of being taken 
seriously. One may as well wish youth 
less young or ideas less consuming when 
(as Eliot says) one has got just a few of 
them as to wish students to so love their 
fellow students that they care more for 
informing them (and themselves) than 
for assaulting them with their own in- 
tellectual excrescences. 

And I think La Vie's is symbolic of 
the larger failure of communication at 
LVC, largely the result, I'm afraid, of 
subjectivism, self-centeredness, and fash- 
ionable ideas of "creativity" which lead 
our best writers away from their audience 
by leading them inward. I would like to 
see this spiritual failing (which, time out 
of mind around Lebanon Valley, has 
gone by the name of apathy) righted. 

I would also like to see a college 
sponsored publication directed at stu- 
dents as well as alumni, parents, and 
friends which would at once report news 
of interest to the whole college com- 
munity and gather the flowers of creative 
and editorial prose being produced with- 
in that community (thus providing such 
an ideal student publication as I have 
spoken of with the opportunity of 
syndicating its morning glories for a 
wider audience). I trust that we shall 
see such a publication before long if I 
find myself able to direct it. 

by Mr. Paul Pickard 

There have been many changes 
at Lebanon Valley since the time, 
only a few years ago, that I sat on 
the students' side of the classroom. 
Most of these changes, I think, have been 
for the better, but there are two changes 
that, if effected, would do a great deal 
for both the college community and for 
the community at large. 

The first change I would like to see 
is an increase in interest on the part of 
students in campus affaixs. 

Apathy is the disease which plagues 
all the houses of our society from the 
Congress of the United States to the local 

government in the smallest town or ham- 
let. One of the stock replies people who 
try to get others interested in working 
on the affairs of state often get is the 
statement, "I don't want to get involved." 

The collary to that statement on the 
Lebanon Valley campus and at many 
other small colleges in small towns, runs 
something along these lines, 'There's 
nothing to do in Annville." 

One way to remedy this thirst for ad- 
venture and excitement brings me to my 
nextpoint-the importance of supporting 
the student newspaper. It is not simply 
because I happen to be the adviser to this 
august work or that the Editor solicited 
my opinion for this special issue that 1 
make this plea. 

Newspapers, both professional and 
non-professional, play an important role 
in society. At college, the student news- 
paper is the most important vehicle for 
students to air their complaints, their 
praises, and simply to tell what has hap- 
pened, is happening, and will happen. 

Perhaps the lack of interest in the 
student newspaper stems from the fact 
that "there is nothing to do in Annville." 
Yet, somehow, with a staff not much 
larger than the Editor herself, La Vie has 
appeared regularly and has done a very 
creditable job with most limited re- 

The paper could also be improved and 
possibly attract more readers if it reflect- 
ed student activities and attitudes in the 
local area. For those students who still 
haven't found that "certain something" 
that seems to be lacking in Annville, how 
about a short, scenic trip to Lebanon? 

We so flog ourselves verbally because 
the Annville campus is so isolated from 
the "real worlds" of New York City and 
Philadelphia where people are forced to 
live in hovels, and where children grow 
up with rats to play with instead of 
teddy bears. 

But Lebanon, only five miles to the 
East, affords some excellent opportuni- 
ties for those students who feel that their 
search for meaning and for something 
worthwhile to do when they are not 
studying is never ending. Lebanon's 
slums, which we do not hear about very 
often, are just as good as those in New 
York City or Philadelphia, except that 
Lebanon's are on a much smaller scale. 
I can't help but wonder if that means the 
depth of human misery and deprivation 
are on a smaller scale, too. 

For better or for worse, we cannot 
pick up this campus and move it closer 
to Philadelphia, or some other big city 
where all the action is. That might not be 
such a loss, especially for those of us 
who still enjoy walking on the streets 
after dark. At any rate, certainly the 
areas surrounding Annville provide some 
excellent possibilities to end the notion 
that there is nothing to do here. 

Perhaps a greater interest in the sur- 
rounding communities would lead to a 
greater interest in student affairs and 
more interesting copy for the readers of 
La Vie? 

Ah, but what does he know????? ♦

I would assume that when dis-

an y sort of institution, be it educa- 
tional or otherwise, most people at- 
mp t to introduce these changes 
within the existing framework of the 
n stitution. Talk centers around what

faculty /administrative people of 
Lebanon Valley College. The changes 
here a t Valley are, for the most part, 
evolutionary rather than revolutionary. 
We desperately need, however, not con- 
tinuing detail modifications here at Valley 
but a sudden sweeping change of direction 
and purpose if this school is to retain any 
semblance of relevance to the needs of 
future students. The entire educational 
progress here at Valley must be made re 
sponsive to the student, because it is for 
the students that Lebanon Valley College 
exists, and it is Lebanon Valley College 
that will fall if it does not meet the 
changing educational priorities of these 

The days of structured, formal group 
education seem to be coming to an end. 
More and more schools on the primary 
and secondary levels are eliminating mark- 
ing systems which promote unwanted 
pressure and unnecessary competitive- 
ness. These schools are beginning to 
realize that student freedom is essential 
to student interest and growth. Several 
colleges, the most famous being Antioch, 
have initiated a similar system of educa- 

tion tailored to the individual student by 
himself. College as it exists at L.V.C. 
promotes unneeded competition, tension 
and to a degree even paranoia. It is time 
that the college student, who is paying 
for his education, be allowed to pursue 
it in his own way geared to his own 
goals and desires. 

There are many ways in which the 
student is blocked from his pursuit of 
true education here at L.V.C. From the 
onset of college life, he is demanded to 
live up to a set standard of performance. 
He is scrutinized during the admissions

I am in the second half of my 
second decade at Valley (yes, I am 
that old) and I have seen much 
change, the most heartening to me 
having come in the last half of my 
second decade. This encourages me 
to wish, even hope for more. I would like 
most to see changes in program. Let's 
have more emphasis on philosophy, on 
the creative and interpretive arts, and on 
nonverbal approaches to learning. But 
let's have this without starving present 
programs. We can afford these things-in- 
deed, cannot not afford them if we are to 
be truly the liberal arts college we now 
profess to be. Let's have greater flex- 
ibility and choice of routes to the degree 
than offered by present departmental 
m ajors, general and distribution require- 
ments. Interdepartmental majors, non- 
major programs and other routes should 
be open. Let's have more communication 
between academic disciplines and depart- 
ments while continuing to maintain and 
b wld strength of such disciplines and de-

partments. Let's have -let's create togeth- 
er a core experience, a unique Lebanon 
Valley College experience, that will make 
us more a college and less an agglomera- 
tion of academic departments. 

I would like to see changes in stu- 
dents. I would like them to have more 
confidence in themselves, more apprecia- 
tion for themselves. After all, Valley stu- 
dents are the greatest people in the world. 
If they could somehow realize more con- 
fidence in themselves, perhaps they would 
also have more confidence in the College. 
I would like more students to realize as 
undergraduates what they are getting or 
could get here. I am as much insulted as 
I am gratified when my students return 
from graduate school to tell me that they 
never realized until they got into gradu- 
ate school how good their undergraduate 
program was. I would like our students to 
be more alive to issues, to be more re- 
sponsive and responsible intellectually. 
I would like them to challenge me, con- 
tradict me, argue with me, fight me (in-, 
tellectually) in and out of the classroom, 
more than they do at present. I think 
most of my faculty colleagues would like 
that too. 

Now I suppose I should wish openly 
for change in faculty and administra- 
tion for by implication I have wished 
for this as I have asked for changes in 
program. Faculty and administration are 
in large measure responsible for program 
changes, although eagar for student par- 
ticipation. Therefore, faculty and ad- 
ministration must change if program is 
to be different. Changes in faculty, ad- 
ministration and program may be needed 
to help accomplish some of the desired 
change in students. However, much re- 
sponsibility for that rests with the stu- 
dents themselves. 

As long as I am wishing for change, 
let me ask for a few other things, I would 
like some students and colleagues who 
are interested in the same research and 
writing areas as I am, and some on- 
going conversation with them about 
these areas. I would like the College to 
have a deluge of money, (that would be 
a change!) to relieve Dr. Sample and 
others of the stress of fundraising, to 
make new facilities immediately possible, 
to make further increases in tuition un- 
necessary, and to enable us to add enough 
personnel in all areas to decrease the 
loads of some badly overworked peo- 

time. He is enticed by meaningless aca- 
demic honors into competition with o- 
there students that very often results ii 
the creation of unwanted and unwarrant- 
ed anxieties. He is taught by assigned 
professors, many of whom care little if 
at all about the people that they are 
teaching, especially if the students are 
not in that professor's area of interest. 
He is fed inferior food, lodged in in- 
ferior buildings, and offered inferior med- 
ical aid only at certain prescribed times 
during the day. In short, for his money 
the average student receives a four-year 
pain in the ass. 

It is my feeling that, since the stu- 
dent is paying for his education, he 
should be allowed to determine for 
himself what he wishes to study, and 
what goals he wishes to attain by way of 
his college experience. Admissions to the 
college would be determined by written 
manuscripts submitted by each pro- 
spective student, in which would be 
stated the aims of the student, both 
academically and in his later career. 
Thos students who submit the most 
ambitious proposals would be accepted 
for admission. Once entered into the 
college, the student would pursue a 
course of independent study within his 
field of interest at his own pace. In one 
fell swoop this would eliminate pre- 
requisite courses in major areas, required 
"liberal arts" courses, grades, course re- 
gistration, minimum academic require- 
ments, and a rigid weekly class schedule. 
Students would be advised by their major 
advisors as to suggested courses to at 
tend, but would not be required to take 
any if he does not see fit. Students wish- 
ing to take courses would sign up with 
the teacher of that course, and by at- 
tending a minimum of x-number of 
classes in said course, would receive 
credit for having completed the course. 
If the attendence requirement is not met, 
or if the student later desires, he could 
drop the course with no penalty. The 
only reason for a course minimum at 
tendence requirement is to insure that 
the student has been exposed to a bare 
minimum of knowlege in that course, 
and thus not allow students to sign for 
courses that they, in effect, never took. 
The minimum attendence figure would 
be set by the college for all courses, and 
the student would be apprised of this 
sole requirement before he chooses to 
take or not to take the course. Of course, 
there would be no testing and, thus, no 
individual evaluation on the school level 
The school would function simply as an 
educational body, and refrain from test- 
ing the abilities of admitted students. In 
this way, the student is responsible for 
making his stay at college a fruitful one. 

Records would be made at the end of 
each school term as to the work the stu 
dent had done in his field of study, and 
the number and type of courses h< 
has completed. These records would be 
kept for the duration of the student's 
stay at college, and upon completing 
school (again, the length of stay would 
be determined by the student) a total 
record of all work would be issued with 
the student. No degrees would be con- 
ferred unless the student requests them. 
Here and here only would testing become 
a factor. Students requesting degrees 
would be issued comprehensive exam 
inations, preferably of the take-home 
variety, for completion within a set 
time limit, this determined by the col- 
lege. Upon completion of the tests, the 
faculty members of the student's major 
department would collectively review the 
submitted papers, and in this way de- 
termine whether or not to confer the re- 
quested degree. Degrees are obviously 
required for professional positions after 
completing college, but the student him- 
self would determine the necessity for it 
within his personal goals, and would be 
responsible for acquiring sufficient know- 
ledge to successfully complete the degree 
tests if he chooses to take them,totally 
free of any course requirements. This 
requires a great deal more personal ma- 
turity from the student than the pre- 
sent system of various required courses 
with required attendances, and would go 
a long way toward the elimination of

I dedicate this article to my 
friends who have sacrificed their 
time and energy to make LVC a 
more liberal institution during the 
last four years. If you are not familiar 
with the above names, it is your business 
to find out who they are and what they 
did to help liberate you from archaic 
rules and traditions. However, the strug- 
gle is not over. Responsible student lead- 
ers are continuing the work and are now 
planning strategy for the spring term. 

Unite behind your leaders and work 
for these changes. 

1. Diversity of Student Population- 
It is obvious to many visitors of LVC that 
there is a lack of Black and other minor- 
ity students in this institution. One 
finds it hard to pursue a liberal educa- 
tion in a school that is so thoroughly 
white as ours. Most of our students 
have had very little or no interaction 
with Black or other minority groups. As 
a result, some students have developed 
attitudes that have been dictated by 
their parents, friends, and the mass 
media. We can all benefit by having a 
diverse student body so that we may 
learn by living together. No longer must 
ignorance be tolerated, for ignorance 
often breeds racial hatred. President Sam- 
ple has expressed some interest in this 
problem. Support him by giving your 
own ideas to alleviate this sad situation. 
He has opened up his office to speak 
with you, take advantage of it. 

2. Develop better relationships with 
Local Community -In the past LVC has 
been looked at with suspicious eyes by 
the local community. Most institutions 
have developed close relationships with 
the local people and all have benefited 
from the experience. It would be desir- 
able to serve the communities of Lebanon 
and Annville with a Drug Crisis Center 
and other community projects to sup- 
plement our Arts Festival and music pro- 

3. Board of Trustee-I feel that the 
Board of Trustees must be revamped to 
meet the needs of today's students. The 
ministers on the Board must play a small- 
er role in determining the social and in- 
tellectual life on this campus. It would 
be desirable to make the Board of Trus- 
tees more diverse with men and women 
who understand the wants and needs of 
the students of 1972, not 1950. The 
Board of Trustees must also make them- 
selves available to the students. They 
should not continue to play the role of 
absentee policy makers. 

4. 24 Hour Open Dorms-This situa- 
tion should be explored and experiment- 
ed for the students are mature enough to 
assume responsibility for themselves. 

5. Drinking-Legalize drinking on 
campus for students that have reached 
the age of 21. 

6. Cut Policy -The present cut polic- 
ies of many of the departments need re- 
vision. More cuts should be allowed. 

7. Speakers- Student Government 

by Mr. Richard Iskowitz 

I would guess that a number of 
people see the goal of a college ed- 
ucation as acquiring a specialization 
for the job market. The question I 
ask is how does the full time job of 
acquiring skills go hand in hand with 
acquiring a humanistic education at a 
liberal arts college? 

The real problem at LVC is that we 
need a comprehensive program of hu- 
manistic study. Unless we further de- 
velop the "fine arts," specifically the 
"visual arts," we are not fulfilling the 
aims of a liberal arts college. I believe 
that one of the greatest goals of this 
college should be to encourage students 
to find a deeper committment to life, 
which implies the excitement of learning 
about the aspirations, the anguish, and 
the accomplishments of man. If man and 
his works are worth studying without re- 
gard to any practical or vocational pur- 
pose, then art as an area of humanistic 
study can become an educational tool to 
learn who and what man is. Andre 
Malraux said, "The basic problem is that 
our civilization of machines can teach 
man everything except how to be a man." 

Are we providing the atmosphere for 
man to know more about man? Are we 
providing the facilities (courses and phy- 
sical plant) for those students who desire 
to satiate their aesthetic needs? I feel 
that by strengthening the "visual arts," 
we can acquire more knowledge about 
the achievements of man and at the same 
time be enriched aesthetically because 
art is a life enhancing pursuit. 

should make an attempt to bring in 
more popular and controversial speakers. 

Finally the most important change 
has to take place within the student 
body. We cannot remain apathetic and 
expect change to come. Uniting and 
voicing our demands may be the only 
way to achieve results at Lebanon Val- 
ley College. 

we can all benefit by having a 
diverse student body so that 
we may learn by living together. 

— -howie chwatt 

those students whose desire for aca- 
demic improvement is subordinated to 
the desire for collegiate socialization. 

With regard to the food, medical, and 
lodging facilities of the college for the 
students, I would do the following. First, 
as to the college food situation, since 
the Valley cafeteria has proven itself in- 
capable of producing food that is at once 
both nourishing and palatable, the ob- 
vious solution is to remove the cafe- 
teria, and instead offer a series of con- 
veniently located snack bars. In this way, 
the student could determine what he 
wants to eat, and by vitue of the fact 
that individual meals would be prepared 
fresh, be reasonably assured of an edi- 
ble meal. The cost of the cafeteria meals 
would be dropped from the room and 
board costs. Second, the infirmary would 
be staffed at all times with at least one 
nurse on duty and a doctor on call, for 

aid in diagnoses and emergencies. There 
would be no posted infirmary hours, as 
aid would be available at all times. Oh, 
yes, the nurses would be required to dis- 
play a minimum degree of competence 
over a probationary period of at least a 
year, subject to dismissal for inadequate 
performance. Finally, lodging would be 
determined solely by the individual. If 
he would want to live in a dormitory, he 
would have a choice of roommate and 
the option to supply comfortable fur- 
niture in place of the school-issue articles. 
This would include beds, desks, and 
dressers, as well as lamps. If school is- 
sue articles are not used, suitable deduc- 
tions would be made in the cost of room 
and board for each student. Students 
would be allowed to decorate their rooms 
by any means desired, including re- 
painted, as long as nothing school-owned

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, February 10, 1972 

by Debbie Simmons 

There are several things which I 
would like to see changed at Leb- 
anon Valley. I would most like to 

see less inbreeding of faculty and 
administration members. More people 
without a LVC background should be 
recruited in places of authority. This is 
not meant to take anything away from 
the abilities of those presently in these 
positions. I think a more diverse view- 
point, that is, people who did not 
graduate from LV, would be helpful in 
updating school policies. 

Another area in which I would like to 
see major changes is in the curricula of 
the college. Granted, the basic courses 
are present, but even these do not cover 
as many areas as is necessary to have a 
broad background. This would also entail 
the addition of more faculty members. 
I would like to see departments enlarged 
and additional courses developed, with 
more opportunities for independent study 
This of course would cost money, but 
if the college can spend several thousands 
of dollars for a fence just so the grass 
will be allowed to grow without being 
walked on, then I think money can also 
be found to add some new courses or 
faculty. Carpeting on a floor in a class- 
room is nice, but I am more concerned 
with what is being taught in the room 
than the type of floor covering. I think 
that this entails a re-arranging of prior- 
ities by those in the positions of author- 
ity. Also, I think more student opinions 
should be sought before major decisions 
concerning student affairs are made, 
after all, it is the students who are 
affected by them and must live with 
them, not those who are presently 
deciding the events on campus. I think a 
greater student voice, but a responsible 
one, is necessary in determining affairs 
at LVC. -*

"What is wrong with LVC?" Had 
I been asked this question as a fresh- 
man there would have been many 
more things which I considered 
wrong with this school. The college 
center, new dorms, and plans for a new 
music building are all signs of physical 
improvements on campus. But with all 
these improvements, I feel the over-all 
appearance of the campus has taken a 
definite step backwards with the fence. 
Although this subject is slightly worn 
out already, the administration seems to 
be doing nothing about the fence despite 
Building Committee proposals. 

Student government is another area 
in which great changes have been made. 
But here again, the problem is with the 
degree and rate of change. Lebanon Val- 
ley seems to move too slowly toward 
making the rules of LVC coincide with 
rules that govern individuals in the com- 
munity as a whole. Many rules fail to 
recognize that college students are adults 
not children and are capable of govern- 
ing their own lives. I realize that any 
society or institution is in need of rules 
for effective governing, and hope that 
when the government is reviewed this 
semester that the resulting rules will meet 
these needs without unduly restricting 
students. I think some administrators 
find it hard to put themselves in the stu- 
dents place and consequently have dif- 
ficulty accepting students' reasoning for 

Academically, I'd like to see additions 
and expansion of courses in certain 
areas. I feel basic journalism courses 
would be a great help to those working 
on the yearbook and newspaper. Even if 
they were only in the shape of work- 
shops. Another valuable addition would 
be additional art courses. The new cata- 
log shows the increased opportunities for 
independent study, which I see as an im- 
portant move in promoting more indi- 
vidualized programs of study. 

I think that as students we are so 
pressured by getting grades and by other 
interests that we often fail to take ad- 
vantage of the education available to us 
outside the classroom such as with many 
of the outstanding speakers who appear 
on campus to a meagar audience. This 
also happens with activities designed just 
for pleasure. Student Council is always 
faced with the dilemma of whether an 
event will be supported. It can be called 
apathy or lack of time but by any 
name the problem of finding people with 
enough time and enough interest to spon- 
sor events. 

The atmosphere has improved on 
campus since the college center has been 
built but personality differences between 
the College Center director and students 
sometimes creates problems. 

In general, I'd say LVC is improving, 
but problems still remain. One problem 
is that these changes come too slowly to 
keep pace with the changing needs and 
desires of the student body. ♦

8:00-Chapel February 25, 1972 


by Capt. Charles Cooper 

This is my seventh year at LVC 
and I've seen a lot of changes, par- 
ticularly in the last few years in 
student life. While some do not con- 
sider that much progress has been made, 
I certainly do think so, and I do not 
think we have to be apologetic about 
LVC being overly conservative. Steady 
progress, though perhaps slow, is still 

The changes I would like to suggest 
are primarily in the academic area, and 
I think it's time we devoted more time to 
this area and less to where tank tops 
can be worn. It's the academic life that 
makes this place go, the reason for its 
existence, and we must devote more at- 
tention to our academic program if we 
are to continue to improve. 

First, I'd like to see the general aca- 
demic program changed to reflect more 
emphasis on learning and less on exam- 
inations. This is like most of my ideas- 
great in theory but somehow less in 
practice. We need, I think, to seek solu- 
tions to the problem of dependence of 
grades on a few 1 hour semester exams 
plus a final exam. The answer to the first, 
in my opinion, is organized, regular study, 
not jusr prior to exams as is the prac- 
tice of most students. Steady applica- 
tion is the only way to learn a language, 
and most everything else, but our depen- 
dence on exam grades seems to result in 
over-cramming and under-learning. I'd 
like, therefore, to see a change made to 
put more emphasis on daily preparation 
"and less on exams. 

Second, I think we should offer more 
courses of general interest for both the 
student body and the community. Each 
semester we should offer at least one 
additional course which is open to the 
public (for a very modest fee of regis- 
tration, and nothing more). In one semes- 
ter the course could be in those fields not 
well represented (or not represented at 
all) in our academic programs taught 
principally by visiting teachers; in the 
other semester the course would be 
given by LVC personnel. 

Third, in the field of foreign lan- 
guages I'd suggest these changes: 

a. placement of students with pre- 
vious study according to their ability, 
not according to the number of years 
the language has been studied. Thus every 
student should be able to benefit from 
previous study in high school and not be 
forced to start another language, or com- 
pete with students with superior pre- 
paration. If we want students to study 
language and benefit there from we owe 
them the right to begin where they are 
best fitted, and then require reasonable 
progress. Too often our fixed policy 
tied to the number of years studied 
prior to LVC results in students being 
placed in second year level, for which 
they are not prepared. The result is that 
their foreign language learning exper- 
ience is excruciating and demoralizing, 
they're only happy when it's over, and 
we as a college have done just exactly 
the opposite of what we set out to do 
in requiring the student to take a 
language in the first place. Instead of 
opening a door, we have slammed it 

The argument is that if a student pre 
sents two or more years of high school 
language credits for admittance to LVC 
allowing the student to start over, i.e. 
begin Spanish 1 instead of Spanish 10, is 
to negate his entrance credits. What dif- 
ference does it make if this student 
chooses to start a new language (heaven 
forbid!)? I just can't see this reasoning 
if we really want our students to benefit 
from a study of a foreign language. 

The fact is that only a very few lan- 
guage students wouldn't benefit from re- 
peating the first year, particularly with 
the benefit of oral practice in the lan- 
guage lab, one facet of language learn- 
ing omitted in many high schools. What- 
ever, we should strive to build on what 
has already been learned rather than 
starting over anew. To this end all stu- 
dents presenting two or more years of 
language study for entrance should be 
required to take the CEEB Achievement 

test in that language. 

I cannot help bur add that in this 
area of language placement I would like 
to see a change in the advice given to 
students by those faculty advisors who 
see the language requirement as some- 
thing to be endured and so present it to 
the student. I don't think the student 
should be deceived as to why there is a 
language requirement to begin with, 
namely, as a broadening cultural and 
educational experience, and further I 
don't think the average student would 
object to such requirement if given a 
decent break in fulfilling it. 

b. A means for establishing credits for 

/ think it's time we devoted more 
time to the academic area and less 
to where tank tops can be worn.

overseas travel in the country whose lan- 
guage is studied. 

c. Requirement of the junior year 
abroad for language majors. It is now 

d. Credit allowance for summer read- 
ing. This would be particularly import- 
ant for language majors, but is adaptable 
to almost every field. 

Now turning to other areas, there are 
other changes I'd like to see: 

a. Return to faculty status of the li- 
brarian, the director of admissions, dean 
of men, dean of women, chaplain, and 
registrar. The faculty, that is the full 
time teaching faculty, in what I consider 
was an ill-advised move, voted to oust 

these colleagues because they are not 
"teaching" faculty. I think we are a 
small enough faculty to keep thorn jjj 
the fold and benefit from their ex- 
perience and comments, and that no. 
thing is gained by denying them a vote 
on faculty issues, except to alienate 
them and further increase the commun. 
ication problem. 

b. Abolition of class advisors. This 
function could best be served by the 
Dean of Men and the Dean of Women. 
Every class goes through the same 
trials and tribulations, and surely the 
Deans have seen and understood more 
of this than the average faculty member. 

c. Finally, now that the new calendar 
is in effect to end the first semester 
prior to Christmas, I would like to 
change the commencement of the second 
semester to provide a minimum of four 
weeks (preferable five) of vacation from 
end of exams to the second semester 
registration. This would be popular with 
skiers, but I think it would be of great- 
er benefit to students who wish to 
study /travel in and out of the U.S. in 
furtherance of their liberal education. 

There are other changes I'd like, of 
course, but they are by and large tied to 
money, for example, more tennis courts. 
The changes I have suggested we could 
make right now if we could sit down and 
thrash them out among ourselves, the 
college family. 

I'd like to close by expressing my 
appreciation to La Vie for the progress 
it has made this year and for the 
opportunity to express my views.

There is magic in the word 
change, for there is always the un- 
spoken hope that human behavior 
is capable of reconstitution and 
that manipulation of the environment 
will inevitable lead to that new age. 
But magic has its black form as will, 
and we know the consequences of Faust's 
fascination with it. 

I am usually caught between the two 
modes: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 
can be optimistic; Tuesday and Thurs- 
day can be cynical and dour, (like many 
students, my weekends are spent away 
from campus). What follows is an at- 
tempt to balance the days of the week 
and should not be taken as pure equi- 

We gather on campus for the purpose 
of seeking intellectual maturity. Two 
prerequisites are freedom and dedication. 
Freedom from the bonds of family but 
not from the love; freedom from social 
authority but not from its purpose; 
dedication to the task of self-realization 
through inquiry and thought. 

The college provides the means for 
carrying out this activity. Courses pro- 
vide some tools and classes are focused 
gatherings where part of the inquiry is 
carried out. The protagonist is the in- 

There are rules and regulations so 
that the individual will not be shunted 
off the track and he or she will not be- 
come more interested in the medium 
than in the message. 

Freedom and Dedication at LVC. 

Rules and regulations have a habit of 
creating mentalities for which the rules 
regulations apply. I would like to see 
more individual freedom at LVC, reflect- 
ed in a set of rules that assume a great- 
er measure of maturity in the belief that 
a more individual consciousness would be 
created and intellectual enjoyment and 
interest increase. 

Intimately associated with the free- 
dom on campus that I desire would be an 
increase in honest intellectual exertion. 
To be honest myself, I realize the force 
of enervation and discontinuity in my 
own efforts and I need desperately that 
tie with students which acknowledges 
our common interests and goals. 

by Mr. Warren Thompson 

I think the students here in their 
attitudes and moods offer a very 
noticeable (but not the only) exam- 
ple of what needs a bit of change 
for the better. For their part, they must 
realize the seriousness of their role in the 
general scheme of things on this campus. 
Some of the pressures now impinging 
upon the College, not all of which are 
financial, are also at work on the people 
who attend it; no longer, it is now evi- 
dent, is an undergraduate degree the au- 
tomatic passport to post-graduate suc- 
cess. With this reality in mind, it might 
profit our students to be concerned 
more with things that really matter. 

It is obvious that there is a great deal 
of delight to be had in student agitation 
about such issues as rail fences, inter- 
visitation hours, student center directors, 
and the ineffable transports accompany- 
ing the possession of strong waters and 
other even stronger potions in one's 
dormitory room. Yet this is the sheerest 
luxury -a very sel fish one at that-and 
really a waste of time in many respects. 
I think it is also irrelevant to a duty 
students have, not so much to the College 
but precisely to themselves and to each 
other, that they avail themselves of 
every opportunity to learn, to grow, to 
think, and to take intellectual chances. 
This instead of taking the cheap grace of 
refuge in periodic wailings about this or 
that social situation on campus which 
somehow fails to strike their fancy. 

I am not suggesting that our students 
never have the right, nor much less an 
obligation, to speak out in request of 
change. It is perfectly obvious that they 
do in fact possess such. And this is surely 
right and just, for they are truly part of 
a genuine community here, and what 
happens to the College happens to the 
students. One must never forget this. 

In the long run it would seem more 
beneficial for our students if they would 
expend some organized energy on things 
having a bearing on their lives beyond 
their undergraduate days. For our stu- 
dents, I think, have both a duty and a 
right to demand the best in academics, 
and if they pause a while they may well 
realize their immense power in this re-

Some of the changes that I 
u jd like to see initiated at LVC 
n be divided into two categories: 
c having to do with academic 
fe and those concerning students' daily 
,'d social lives. 

Academic life first. Students should 
least be consulted in the hiring of 
3 w professors. This could be accom- 
Tshed quite easllv if a11 departments 
P dopted the process that the Biology de- 
3 tment often follows in the hiring of 
j^v personnel. Each prospective profes- 
sor presents a seminar-type lecture open 
to the general public and attended by stu- 
dents and faculty of the department. If 
such a lecture were required of all pro- 
spective faculty, students who wished 
to attend, especially students of the 
department in question, could give their 
reactions to the department head or ad- 
ministrators responsible for hiring new 
personnel. Student opinion would be 
aired and students would have the op- 
portunity to become acquainted with 
the new professors before encountering 
them in a classroom. There are two 
other advantages to this practice. Faculty 
and administrators might be better able 
to judge the candidates' competency by 
seeing them in a classroom situation. 
Also, the new prof could size up pro- 
spective students and become acquainted 
with the academic situation at the college 
before coming here to teach. I think 
this seminar lecture would prove bene- 
ficial to all concerned. 

Students in many departments seem 
to feel naturally superior to the rest of 
the school. Many natural science majors, 
for instance, think that their colleagues 
in the social sciences and the humanities 
have infinitely easier courses and work 
loads. A lot of social science and human- 
ities majors feel the same way with re- 
spect to the natural sciences. Practically 
everyone designates El Ed as the "pie" 
course on campus. This type of thinking 
is wrong and should change. Each stu- 
dent possesses certain abilities and has 
theoretically chosen the major at which 
he or she will be most proficient. Natural- 
ly, a physics course might be extremely 
difficult to an education or social science 
major. But I dare say there are also a 
lot of natural science majors who would 
have difficulty passing an education 

In discussing changes in student life, 
I would like to bring back to life the 
die-hard issue of intervisitation. Well 
never see 24 hour open house on week- 
ends at LVC, so I won't go into that. I 
would, however, like to see an extension 
of intervisitation to week nights, with 
quiet hours strictly enforced. The co-ed 
'°ungesare often quite noisy in the even- 
m §s, as are the Center Lounge (music is 
" SUa lly being played) and the music lis- 
ting lounge. If a male and female stu- 
th ent wish to study together, where do 
ev go? It would J^e a lot more con- 

Uudents should at least be con- 
sulted in the hiring of new

Change at Lebanon Valley is 
necessary in most areas including 
academic, student government, and 
social affairs. Probably the most 
significant change necessary is the elim- 
ination or reduction of the "accountabil- 
ity gap" that I believe exists between the 
students and administration. I view the 
resolution of this problem as one which 
must ultimately be achieved before ef- 
fective change can be instituted in any 

This "accountability gap" arise out 
of a basic mistrust on both sides. Stu- 
dents do not wish to be held responsible 
for policies they have had little or noth- 
ing to do with making. Enforcement of 
rules breaks down and the students dis- 
play in the eyes of the administration ir- 
responsiblity and immaturity. On the 
other side of the gap, administrators en- 
dorse a student government which allows 
for little real student control and even 
less flexibility. Rules instituted are often 
unpopular and impractical, but serve to 
maintain the institution's role as "a mo- 
ther away from home." This policy of 
in loco parentis nurtures immaturity and 

Perhaps the problem is over simpli- 
fied in this statement, but the matter 
of responsibility and maturity carries 
over from student government into aca- 
demic and social affairs. 

Developing responsibility and matur- 
ity is an integral part of a liberal arts ed- 
ucation. Learning to live together de- 
mands many of the same skills necessary 
in the classroom. Perhaps it would be 
beneficial to place the burden of accoun- 
tability in government and social affairs 
on the students also. 

To resolve the issue of accountability 
I would suggest two very basic "institu- 
tional rules." The first rule would be de- 
signed to protect college and personal 
property with the punishment tailored 
to equal the offense. The enforcement 
of quiet hours would be the second rule. 
Within these two "institutional rules." 
student government could operate flex- 
ibly, establishing other minor rules and 
enforcement procedures. Provisions for 
housing those who did not desire "open 
dorms" and women's security measures 
would be among the items to de deter- 
mined by student government. Such a 
system would encourage responsibility 

and experimentation. No question could 
arise under this system as to whom was 
accountable for an action. With rules de- 
signed by student elected officials, the 
fear arising from lack of enforcement 
could be eliminated. 

From the experience I have gained in 
working with student government, I be- 
lieve it is safe to generalize that the pro- 
cess of change at Lebanon Valley is slow 
and complex. In recent years a number 
of significant changes have occurred (e.g. 
elimination of curfews, construction of a 
college center) yet much remains to be 
done. The process of change itself needs 
to be streamlined. With the student gov- 
ernment review just the beginning, the 
time is right to investigate the avenues 
of change. There is a need to be vocal 
about change. 

While change in student government 
is perhaps the most important, there are 
a number of other changes I would like 
to suggest. Despite the difference the 
"honor system" has made on chapel-con- 
vocation events, these meetings are still 
required and are too often of a religious 
nature. An academic punishment still 
looms for the honorable offender. 

Lebanon Valley boasts of excellent 
student-faculty relations. In some areas 
these relations could be much improved. 
The fault might rest on both sides, I 
would like to see the music department 
encourage non-majors to enroll in more 
technical courses. Music appreciation is 
generally one of the few courses available 

I would like to see the College Center 
run more democratically by an advisroy 
committee with extended hours and ser- 

It might be beneficial to operate the 
institution with a smaller and more re- 
sponsive Board of Trustees. Apparently 
that body is too often a rubber stamp. 

Although I have overlooked many 
things which are in need of change,- 
much of what can be done must origin- 
ate from a student government with 
flexiblity and responsibility. 

ten feel that it is easier, or at least 
more exciting, to criticize and work 
against the administration than to sin- 
cerely try to understand some of the Pres- 
ident's policies, in particular. At the 
same time, however, I feel that members 
of the administration often give only 
token consideration to our complaints 
and suggestions: enough to pacify stu- 
dent opinion, but not enough to effect 
a real change. Sincerity and under- 
standing, not superior cunning, should 
govern the student-administration rela- 

Finally, I would like to voice the 
perennial desire of a college student. I 
wish the food at the dining hall could be 
improved. Certainly, cooking for over 
700 people is no easy task. But it is 
rather unappetizing to have to squeeze 
the greese out of one's hamburger before 
it becomes edible. If the grease content 
of the food can't be cut down, at least 
Rolaids could be dispensed with the des- 

The changes suggested here are by no 
means the only or the most pressing sit- 
uations to be remedied at the college. 
But I suppose it is a start. 

probably the most significant 
change necessary is the elimination 
or reduction of the "accountability 
gap" that i believe exists between 
the students and the administration.

is damaged and they themselves foot the 
bill. If a student wishes to live off cam- 
pus, he would be permitted to do so re- 
gardless of age or marital status, class 
standing being of course a negated fac- 
tor due to the elimination of strict 
classifications by the re-vamped academ- 
ic standards. The student in all instances 
is left to exercise his will to do as he 

Thus what we would have in the end 
would be an educational body free from 
competition, meaningless requirements, 
meaningless class distinctions, and al- 
most total freedom from evaluation by , 
outside agents. The students themselves 
would be the true teachers and evalua- 
tors of their progress and would be at last 
free to exercise their will to pursue goals 
as they see fit. After all, we the students 
are paying to attend here, and I feel it is 
high time that we are treated as interested 
consumers of education rather than the 
wards of an overseeing body of maiden 
aunts. Lebanon Valley College would 
then truly be an institution for student 
learning once again.

Riding Apporel 

by Dean George Marquette 

When one begins to think about 
the changes that he would like to 
see at LVC, he recognizes that either 
limited financial resources or deal- 
ing with legitimate vested interests are 
common prime obstacles that must be 
hurdled if changes are to be effected. 
Perhaps it is beneficial to all that this is 
true inasmuch as change for change's 
sake might otherwise be the rule. That 
change should come about only after 
careful planning and proper allotment of 
resources have been taken into account 
are the marks of the wise steward. Knee- 
jerk change may be damaging and costly. 

The changes that I am suggesting 
have been considered from the cost 
standpoint as well as from the vested in- 
terest standpoint where applicable. Al- 
though several proposed changes will 
have price tags attached to them, the 
costs are in no way prohibitive. Where 
opposition or inertia of vested interests 
are involved, convincing reasons for 
change must be advanced with vigor and 
courage. Each of the changes suggested 
below are possible, desirable and signifi- 
cant in my judgment. Space will not per- 
mit writing a comprehensive statement 
in support of each suggestion. For the 
purposes of this special edition of La 
Vie, it will suffice to make a few sup- 
porting comments. 

First, let us look at physical facil- 
ities that will be built as a result of our 
having a successful Fund for Fulfillment, 
the need for a battery of all-weather ten- 
nis courts should not be overlooked. In 
my estimation, no other athletic facility 
of comparable sost will serve such a 
wide cross-section of students and staff 
as this one. A battery of four to six all- 
weather tennis courts would truly en- 
hance our recreational facilities. 

Another facility that would contri- 
bute much to campus life is a radio sta- 
tion. While it is a fact that initial invest- 
ment would be comparable to the cost 
of publishing The Quittie or slightly more 
costly than a full year's publication of 
the La Vie, it is also true that the annual 
operating costs would be substantially 
less than the annual publishing costs of 
these two important publications. 

The third desirable change I had in 
mind when the editor of the La Vie 
requested my participation in this 
special effort centered in the need for a 
more formalized counseling service. Dur- 
ing recent years several attempts to es- 
tablish a more formal structure have a- 

borted. During the weeks immediately 
preceding the Christmas Recess, a plan 
had been proposed whereby a structured 
counseling service was to have been de- 
vtl^-J from among our full-time facul- 
ty members. This plan was developed 
from a suggestion submitted by the Sub- 
Committee on Counseling and advise- 
ment of the Student Life Committee for 
the Middle States Evaluation Steering 
Committee. During the recess, however, 
an opportunity arose for the college to 
approach this matter in a different fas- 
hion. It is possible that a new program 
will come into being coincidental with 
the publishing of this special edition. 
This change is one that has long been 
sought and is now on the verge of reali- 
zation. It is important that this is includ- 
ed here because it is a good example of 
how even the most highly desirable 
changes may be extremely difficult to 
bring into being. 

Still another change that would be 
desirable in my estimation is the loosen- 
ing up of specific course requirements 
wherever possible. All of us should recog- 
nize that some departments need to es- 
tablish rather extensive requirements in 
order to prepare their majors properly 
for graduate study, professional training 
or competing well in the job market. A 
student should recognize this inflexi- 
bility before he selects one of those areas 
of study. Regardless of the rigidity of 
some curricula, however, providing the 
opportunity for electing more courses 
that may be of interest to the student 
could be given if courses such as fresh- 
man English and foreign languages, a- 
mong others, were reduced, made op- 
tional, or eliminated. This is not to say, 
for example, that there should be un- 
concern about writing skills. On the con- 
trary, some new approach to this mat- 
ter might be worthy of consideration. A 
All that I'm really saying is that I hope 
we will address ourselves in most serious 
fashion to the problem of creating in- 
creased curricular flexibility. 

Finally, a crucial change that I hope 
will occur in the not-too-distant future 
concerns the attitude that students have 
toward College Center Program plan- 
ning. As long as we view the College Cen-

by Mr. John Norton 

Prefatory Statement: 

The following remarks are di- 
rected more at the process of change 
within an institution like LVC 
rather than with specific changes 
which ought to be brought about. 
In my opinion, it is necessary to under- 
stand something about the process of 
lasting, meaningful change before such 
change can occur. It is with this in 
mind that I offer the following com- 


• The Central Role of Attitudes in the 
Role of Change at LVC 

Rules and regulations as well as ad- 
ministrative procedures and leadership 
characteristics at Lebanon Valley, as in 
all other social institutions, as based up- 
on the attitudes and beliefs of those who 
populate the commune. The beliefs and 
attitudes of those who make rules and 
regulations and who set procedural guide- 
lines play an important role in determin- 
ing how things will be done on the cam- 
pus, who may do them, and who will 
oversee and regulate campus activities. 
Therefore, the central attitudes of the 
decision-makers should be of interest to 
all those who fall within the jurisdiction 
of the campus community. Probably the 
primary residual characteristics of the at- 
titudes of policy-makers toward the stu- 
dent body as a whole is paternalism. For 
many of these people, the college is still 
in loco parentis to the student body. 
Since this feeling of protective guidance 
seems to be so important, perhaps it 
would be wise to examine it more close- 

The term "paternalism" has taken on 
a negative connotation within the last 
decade. It has been used by Black leaders 
to describe the liberal approach to the 
solution of racial problems in the United 
States. From this standpoint, paternal- 
ism combines a desire to guide less for- 
tunate, deprived, and basically immature 
people to the full benefits of the society 
with a cynical belief that these people are 
incapable of attaining thses goals by 
their own achievements. The fallacy in 
this approach is that basic rights appar- 
ently cannot be "given" by one group 
of human beings to another. The disen- 
franchised group must reach these rights 
without oversight from an external, pat- 
ernal group. Much of the above has 
relevance for LVC students at this point 
in the development of their relations 
with both faculty and administration. 

It seems clear that as students press 
for, and receive, greater latitude in gov- 
erning themselves on the campus, they 
must have their own heads together (if 
I may borrow this useful phrase) so that 
they use these newly won rights to their 
best advantage. LVC students will have to 
demonstrate a certain degree of author- 
ity and activism; first, to obtain certain 
powers which should properly be exer- 
cised by them, and second, to retain 
these powers once they have been won. 
Students must stop believing that they 
are unqualified to govern themselves both 
wisely and justly. They are capable of 
such governance if they would only be- 

probably the primary residual 
characteristics of the attitudes of 
policy-makers toward the student 
body as a whole is paternalism.

gin to have that confidence in them- 
selves which is a prerequisite to self- 
determination. Only after students have 
demonstrated such confidence will facul- 
ty and administration attitudes begin to 
change from paternalism to trust and re- 

The attainment of self-confidence is 
one of the conditions of maturity. Ma- 
turity requires mature responses to as- 
sumptions of immaturity. Many of the 
rules and regulations to which students 
are subject at LVC assume student im- 
maturity. Student responses to such re- 
gulations ought to be offense and indig- 
nation. A first step, therefore, in the next 
round of changes at LVC should be a 
thorough revision of the rules which 
govern student life on the campus with 
as much student participation as poss- 
ible. If the students do not show an in- 
terest and a willingness to participate in 
the process of change, they cannot ex- 
pect the faculty and administration to be 
impressed with their maturity or their de- 
sire for change. What is far more damag- 
ing, however, is that unless the students 
participate in the process of change, they 
will not be able to denomstrate to them- 
selves that they are capable of mature, 
responsible action in defense of their 
own interests. 

Changes in attitudes must precede 
specific modifications of rules and pro- 
cedures. Students must enter into the 
process of change with the attitude that 
they are capable of intelligent discourse 
and action and then must demonstrate 
these qualities. Only then will specific 
changes in rules and procedures enjoy 
the confidence and support of the entire 
college community.

ter simple as a building, with certain fac- 
ilities available for leisure-time use, that 
is precisely what it will be and only what 
it will be. On the other hand, if we en- 
large our vision and see the Center as a 
program, we will then better understand 
that it begins as a building but ends in 
providing rich and diverse experiences 
for the campus community. In order to 
accomplish this, it needs a program struc- 
ture, money and interested people. It 
needs the ideas of a cross-section of the 
campus community and it needs the 
time and attention of many of us who 
are willing to accept responsibilty for 
planning the specific events that a dy- 
namic program will include. We all agree 
that this is a community of busy people. 
Thus, when the whole responsibility for 
for planning and administering programs 
fall on just a few shoulders, those shoul- 
ders begin to sag and soon discourage- 
ment, cynicism or a second-rate effort 
result. The Student Council, to its credit, 
is wrestling with this problem right now 
and ther are no easy answers to it. Des- 
pite the potential difficulties involved in 
moving towards the creation of a College 
Center Program Board, most of the ex- 
pected difficulties would disappear or be 
resolved in acceptable fashion rather 
easily if the desire to create something 
worthwhile were our motivating force. 

Although other changes could be sug- 
gested, I perferred to suggest five changes 
that are attainable over the short-term 
future. In my opinion they are not only 
desirable and realistic, they also entail 
financial and vested interest costs that 
are visible and manageable. 

all of us - students, faculty, 
administration, trustees - must 
realize that what was good enough 
five or ten years ago may well 
be totally inadequate today.

The changes which in my view 
need to come to LVC fall into two 
general categories: domestic and 
academic. These two genres should 
achieve a harmony of purpose by placing 
emphasis on individuality. 

The college should engender in its 
students the qualities of true leadership 
by helping the student become aware of 
his individual uniqueness. A strength of 
character enabling the individual to not 
always follow the crowd but rather to 
stand up for what he percieves to be 
right needs to be molded. The student 
must be encouraged to know himself in 
order to develop an individual indentity. 
He should not be permitted to hide from 
himself behind a Greek security blanket 
of conformism and conceit. The aboli- 
tion of social fraternities and sororities 
would diminish the group-idenity con- 
sciousness of students. This in turn would 
perhaps enable more students to do their 
own thing. 

The college community should re- 
move itself from a national ethos which 
sets as its goals conflict, competition, 
brutality, masculine insensitivity, and 
anti-intellectualism. As an alternative, 
consensus should be stressed. The subtle 
indoctrination into the "good life" which 
sports provides should be abolished. In- 
stead of meetings of conflict between 
schools, where winning becomes over-em- 
phasised, meetings of consensus, where 

a basis oneness would be found, should 
come into being. A recognition of every - 
man's basic humanity, with an emphasis 
placed on those things not shared with 
the lower animals, needs to be drawn 
out. The masculine role displayed by 
physical force should be traded in for a 
more "culture "-oriented role finding its 
strength in knowledge and ultimately 
the mind. 

In the academic sphere all require- 
ments should be dropped except those 
of the student's major field. One never 
truly learns something they dislike. At 
best, a student can memorize it for a 
short time in order to answer a test. 
How many of us who have trouble learn- 
ing things we find dull can recite every 
verse of every Beatle song ever made, al- 
most without conscious effort. Perhaps 
if we were allowed to study subjects we 
found interesting learning would not be 
a chore. 

The smallness of LVC would allow 
a student to have a program tailored just 
for him. What is more important, educa- 
tion would not become what liberal arts 
proponents have made it; a useless exer- 
cize causing more harm than good by 
creating an under-lying hate for educa- 
tion itself. 

the abolition of social fraternities 
and sororities would diminish the 
group-identity consciousness of

controls 25 votes or 71.5% of the Board 
(essentially the church controls the Presi- 
dent). In contrast the church donates 
approximately $100,000.00 toward a to- 
tal budget of approximately 10 million 
or 1.0% of the total expenses. The stu- 
dents, who have no vote on the Board 
pay about 2 million toward total expen- 
ditures or 20%. Ai serious realignment, 
must be considered. (These figures may 
not be exact but are close to the findings 
in the Middle Atlantic States Review 
Committee report.) 

The present director of the College 
Center should be removed and replaced 
by September 1972. Some may argue 
that Mr. Smith works very hard. This 
may be true, but it is incorrect to cor- 
relate amount of work done with effec- 
tiveness. All applicants for Directorship 
should be reviewed by the Student 
Building Committee along with who- 
ever reviews applicants in the administra- 

The Placement Office, the importance 

of which many students fail to realize 
til it is too late, should be reviewed J 

Instead of paying for a semester j 
meals, students should be able to buy 
meal cards (maybe 20 meals to a card, 
which is punched upon entering th e 
dining hall and students wouldn't hav e 
to pay for all those breakfasts they 
don't eat. 

In examining the 10 institutional 
rules, I would suggest the rule 2 
erased and students should be allowed to 
live off campus; except for freshmen. | 
think that the drinking rule should coin, 
side with Pennsylvania law. I feel th ai 
the men's dorms should be open to wo. 
men 24 hours, 7 days a week and 
the women should determine their o\yj 
intervisitation hours and security rules, 
Finally the rules concerning freshmet 
should be thrown out. The caliber of 
student entering college has changed 
rapidly in recent years-unfortunatelj 
Lebanon Valley has not. 

I would like to close on a light note. 
So, I propose that President Sample teach 
a new course: English 14 -Bureaucratic

reached the levels expected and there- 
fore having qualified for a degree, but I 
think it can be done. 

Third, a major area of study should 
be expected of all students. This area 
again might be described by the depart- 
ment in terms of expectations rather 
than credits. A student must be guided 
carefully within the department, but not 
all students would need travel exactly 
the same pathway. The faculty of the 
department would determine goals and 
objectives having been reached by the 
students. For some students it would 
take five years and for others only three. 

Having met the expectations of the 
three areas, the student would qualify 
for a degree from Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege.- In some ways this program might 
not be greatly different from our present 
program. In other ways it would be a 
radical departure. It would be most dif- 
ficult to build and to initiate, and unless 
education is more important than credits 
it is not worth trying. 

Exceptions and goals are as helpful 
in meeting his or her academic needs as 
they are in meeting one's social, physi- 
cal, and economic needs. Perhaps these 
expectations and goals are absolutely nec- 
essary. They certainly are the privilege of 
an institution which chooses to confer de- 
grees upon those who reach the goals 
and expectations. 

I am not convinced, however, that the 
only legitimate intellectual pilgrimage to 
Lebanon Valley College's goals and ob- 
jectives for the individual is through the 
maze of credits, grades, examinations, 
deadlines, and schedules we now pre- 
scribe. Not everyone reaches an expected 
sound body through performance on the 
basketball court. Not everyone reaches an 
expected level of good citizenship by 
reading ten books on the subject. Not 
everyone need meet the goals and ex- 
pectations for a degree from Lebanon 
Valley College by accumulation of 120 

credits in the same way in the clas 
room and laboratory. Perhaps soir ; 

If the goals and objectives and ex 
pectations are worth their salt, I am sur; 
there is more than one way to reach 
them. There are many ways, and Ithiii 
there would be great vitality and strengti 
and stimulation in a wide variety oi 
ways to meet the bachelor degree it 

I do not desire any lessening of ex 
pectation. To the contrary a substantk 
increase could be justified. I would life 
to see, however, the introduction of 
program that would necessitate a stu 
dent's reaching expectations in three mi 
jor program areas and would allow fc 
his or her reaching those expectations i: 
many different ways. Striving to read 
carefully defined and described expects 
tions seems to ring more true of a real 
educational process than do the accum 
ulation of credits and the memorizing 
for examinations which seem to straii 
jacket us at times. 

Quickly let me give a suggestion k 
the design of three major areas. First, 
an area of common experiences shoult 
be shared by all students. Some of these 
experiences might be specific academt 
courses. Some might be inter-disciplinM 
programs. Some could be field workoi 
field trip kinds of experiences. Son' 
might be in providing services to cam 
pus, community, state, nation, or world 

The accomplishments and participJ 
tion in these experiences would nece v 
sitate evaluation in some way by the sin* 
vising faculty. I doubt that the usual A 
B, C method is the answer to illustrate 
student's having shared in these expe f 
iences in a way befitting a college degr^

AislNVILLE, PA. -On March 20 the last of the Great Artist Series for 
this year will present the Gregg Smith Singers. 

The Singers have successfully revived the 16th Century technique of 
the constant variation of sound by alternation of voice type, source di- 
rection, volume, and tonality. 

From thier beginning in 1955, the chorus has been a "musician's 
choir," and several of its members are composers, having created some 
facinating compositions both for "in the round" and traditional on- 
stage presentation. 

Tickets may be picked up with an I.D. card in the College Center on 
March 6 & 7. 

ANNVILLE, PA. -Dr. Yi Chu Wang, a specialist in Chinese Studies 
and professor of history at Queens College, City University of New York, 
w ill be on campus on March 7 & 8 as a Danford Visiting Lecturer. 

Dr. Wang will give a public lecture on "The Origin of Chinese Com- 
munism" and a convocation address on "East Asia in the Modern World." 

After graduation in 1939 from the University of London where he 
earned a B.S. degree in economics with Honours, Dr. Wang became a 
lecturer in social sciences at the National Col- 
lege of Commerce in Shanghai. After teaching 
at several other Chinese universities, he was 
accounts officer of the World Health Organi- 
zation's Western Pacific Regional Office prior 
to his immigration to the U.S. in 1952. He 
^^^Bfcfcljjf became a naturalized citizen in 1957. 

gJ^^^^J^^ In 1953-54 he was an instructor at the 

University of Chicago. After earning a Ph.D. degree there he held regular 
or visiting professorships at Shippensburg State College, Dickinson, Uni- 
versity of Chicago, University of Texas and University of Kansas. He 
was associate professor of history for three years at the University of 
North Carolina. After teaching at Columbia University in the summer of 
1965, he assumed his present position at Queens College. 

ANNVILLE, PA.-The Lebanon Valley College Concert Choir will 
begin its 1972 tour on March 3. From then through March 10, the choir 
will present concerts in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North 

One of the outstanding collegiate choral organizations in the country, 
the Choir has won wide acclaim from both laymen and professional 
musicians. In March, 1971, the Choir became the first Lebanon Valley 
pcrlorming group to appear in New York City's Town Hall, and in 
December, it participated in the lighting of the national Christmas tree in 
Washington, D.C., at which Vice President Agnew presided. 

The Concert Choir's 1972 tour program is divided into two sections, 
'he hrst featuring seven chronological settings of the Nicene Creed, or 

The presentation will encompass the many centuries in which the 
Cicdo lias been used to praise God through music, beginning with the 
Gregorian Chant, and moving through the Renaissance, Baroque, and 
Romantic periods, to conclude with works by the contemporary com- 
posers Lalo Schifrin and Ariel Ramirez. 

One of the outstanding settings of the Credo to be performed is ex- 
tci pts from Beethoven's Mass in B Minor. The concluding portion of the

Despite the fact that Lebanon Valley 
College is situated in a very conservative 
political area, there has been a rising 
interest by some members of the college 
community and some townspeople in one 
of the more recent organizations of the 
College known as the Friends of the 
United Nations. 

The Friends of the U.N. has its be- 
ginning a few years ago as a group of 
persons who concerned themselves with 
organizing peace activities. Finally, about 
two years ago, the group affliliated it- 
self with the United Nations Association 
Chapter of the U.S.A., and as an as- 
sociate of the larger group it worked 
towards the goal of world peace. Be- 
cause of insufficient funds, however, the 
group is more informal than a regular 

The Friends of the U.N. meet once 
a month in the form of a Steering Com- 
mittee which plans and schedules various 
programs of interest. One of the pro- 

grams planned for the spring is a Seminar 
Tour of the United Nations in New 
York, tentatively scheduled for April 21. 
All interested persons and members of 

the Christian Ethics class will be in- 
vited to attend at an approximate cost 

of S10. Since the Friends of the U.N. 
is short of funds the Annville Councjl of 
Churches is helping to sponsor the trip. 
Once at the U.N., the students will be 
divided up into small groups and will dis- 
cuss specific current topics, led by U.N. 
specialists. Dr. L. Elbert Wethington, a 
member of the Steering Committee, has 
suggested that this would be an excellent 
opportunity for those interested in world 

Another project that is currently 
being held is the annual essay contest 
at Annville-Cleona High School. Cash 
prizes are awarded to those students who 
best discuss the topic related to a U.N. 
issue. Dr. Wethington hopes to expand 
the contest to all high schools in Lebanon 
County by next year. 

The next program will present His 
Excellency, Mr. Samar Sen, the Ambassa- 
dor from the Republic of India, who will 
speak on "India and the Independence of 
Bangladesh." His address, originally sche- 
duled for last Monday, was postponed be- 
cause of the snow.

Art Linkletter, star of television with 
shows such as "People are Funny" 
and "House Party" will be visiting cam- 
pus this weekend. Because of his con- 
cern with the need for Christian lead- 
ership which small private colleges such 
as ours provides, Mr. Linkletter is ar- 
riving primarily to speak at the Leb- 
anon-Derry area Fund for Fulfillment 
kick-off dinner to be held Saturday 
evening. He has also consented to ad- 
dress the student body and the general 
public on Friday night at 8:00 in the 
chapel. Admission is free with tickets 
available at the College Center Re- 
ception Desk. 

Mr. Linkletter's program on Friday 
night will feature a subject which he 
has been increasingly involved with 
since the death of his daughter in 1969. 
That subject, of course, is Drugs-es- 
pecially education and prevention. His 
daughter, Diane, had been taking LSD 
and during a flashback, she threw her- 
self from a window. According to 
Linkletter, "I decided that if I could 
wake people up, shock them into a- 
wareness and action, then our daugh- 
ter's death might have some meaning 
after all." Since the death, Linkletter 
by participating in various seminars and 
even testifying before Congress, has 
become an unofficial expert on drug 

His main effectiveness lies in his 
rapport with parents. Mr. Linkletter 
urges understanding rather than hys- 
teria in dealing with suspected drug use. 
The family should build a relationship 
of trust and discussion right from the 
start; that is, it is too late to start try- 
ing to communicate when your child 
is sixteen, seventeen, or eighteen. He 
feels strongly that the family should 
play an important role in the educa- 
tion against the use of drugs. Unfor- 
tunately, he says, parents are most 
times ignorant themselves in the field 
of drugs and drug abuse. 

There is another side to Art Link- 
letter that is not as well known. Ac- 
cording to a 1969 issue of Forbes, he 
has amassed a fortune close to $20 
million. This wealth came not from 
his many years on television or from 
his popular books (Kids Say the Darnd- 
est Things, etc.) but rather from wise 
investment in stocks, oil, and land. 
He is now Chairman of the Board of 
Linkletter Enterprises which is involved 

in oil, land, and manufacturing; part- 
ner in Vandeburg-Linkletter Associates, 
a public relations and book pack- 
aging firm; president of Art Link- 
letter Oil Enterprises; on the Board of 
Directors of such companies as West- 
ern Airlines, Beeline Fashions and Lear 
Motors. Some of his better investments 
included the Hula-hoop which he made 
about $1 million by selling out before 
the fad ended and also his early invest- 
ment in the Lear Steam vehicles. (The 
steam bus has just made its trial run.) 
Linkletter also owns sheep and cattle 
stations in Australia. 

Mr. Linkletter's success was a typi- 
cal Horatio Alger story. He was born in 
Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, left 
an orphan and adopted by a Baptist 
Evangelist minister. The family moved 
to California where Art attended school. 
He worked his way through college with 
career plans to be a college professor, 

but by his senior year he was already 
involved in radio. 

According to arm-chair psycholo- 
gists, it was his early poverty which 
urged Linkletter to save and invest his 
money rather than spend it on the 
usual status items such as new cars and 

Art Linkletter now has more than 
money with honors including seven 
honorary degrees from various colleges 
and universities. Mr. Linkletter will be 
made an Honorary alumni of LVC. 
Linkletter has been awarded Man of 
the Year, a Freedom Foundation medal 
and an Emmy for "the House Party." 
Linkletter also serves as West Coast 
Chairman for the Foster Parents Plan 
for War Children, National Campaign 
Chairman for the Arthritis Foundation, 
and Honorary Chairman for the Easter 
Seals Campaign for Crippled Children. 

Fence Proposals Rejected 

After consideration, the President has 
rejected the Building Committee's pro- 
posals for the removal of the fence sur- 
rounding the College Center. Two areas 
were mentioned by the Committee a 
possible sites for the fence -the athletic 
field and the hill between the road and 
railroad tracks. In speaking to one mem- 
ber of the group, Dr. Sample said that he 
felt that at the locations suggested the 
fence would serve no useful purpose. 

The President said he will give the 
Committee time to discuss other possi- 
ble solutions, but stated he could not 
foresee any that would be acceptable. 
The only plan with possible merit was 
to split up the fence and place it in 
different locations around the campus 
where the grass is being turned to mud. 
This suggestion was rejected by the 
Building Committee and the President 
stated that it would probably be unac- 
ceptable to the student body. 

Should the Building Committee be 
unable to find a workable solution, it is 
possible that a landscape archetect could 
be called in to study the plan of the 
entire campus and propose changes. This 
would include not only consideration of 
the fence, but also the placement of 
bushes and trees on the campus as a 

In moving to other subjects, the 
President reported that the plans for the 
music building were nearing completion. 
As of now the building will contain a 

600-seat music hall, a rehearsal hall, 
50 practice rooms, a piano laboratory, 
an electronics laboratory, four organ 
practice rooms, a music library, a rec- 
ording studio, and classrooms. 

The building will cost some $2 mil- 
lion. It will include the best possible 
acoustics and be completely air con- 

In discussing the change from a 
fine arts building to a music building, 
President Sample said that they were 
thinking in terms of the future. When 
asked in particular about the lack of 
stage equipment in the auditorium, Dr. 
Sample replied that the College Center 
theatre was the ideal size for dramatic 
presentations and it was the size pre- 
ferred by surrounding colleges. In re- 
sponding to another specific question 
on why the art department was not 
included in the new building, Dr. Sample 
pointed out the large size of our music 
department and that in terms of future 
plans once the Science Hall is completed 
it will contain all five sciences thus 
freeing considerable space in the Ad- 
ministration building. This space could 
then be converted to serve other pur- 

In a final statement it was noted that 
none of these projects will be started 
until financial resources are put in order. 
This includes the S4 million to be 
raised in the current Fund for Fulfill- 
ment drive.

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE is published bi-weekly by the students of Lebanon Val- 
ley College except during examination periods and vacations. LA VIE is printed by 
Boyer Press, Lebanon, Pa. Newspaper offices are located in the College Center, low- 
er level. Telephone— 867-3561, ext. 316. Subscriptions are available for $2.50 per 
semester. The opinions expressed in the newspaper are those of the editors, and do 
not represent the official opinion of the college. 


Seemingly the final act in the drama of the fence has been played 
out. Last week President Sample formally rejected the proposals made 
by the Building Committee. It is highly doubtful whether any new pro- 
posals presented would be acceptable. 

The initial mistake concerning the fence clearly rests with President 
Sample and he accepts his responsibility for its construction. However, 
the fact that the fence still stands is the students' mistake. In many 
ways this second mistake is the bigger one. The fact that the fence still 
stands shows the lack of effectiveness of student opinion. And here again 
the blame must be placed upon the student body for not applying enough 
pressure for its removal. Students do not seem to realize that united they 
are a tremendous force. 

This syndrome of avid interest followed by gradually deepening apathy 
typifies not only the fence issue but practically everything else under- 
taken at Valley. Students are constantly degrading themselves about 
what they can accomplish. It is time that students recognize their latent 
ability to effect the programs and the policies of this institution. 


The previous issue received considerable verbal comment— but little 
in the form of written response. It is hoped that discussion on the sub- 
ject of change at Lebanon Valley College will not end on page six of that 
issue. Included in this week's issue are several columns which were not 
published in the special issue because of lack of space. La Vie encourages 
additional comments by anyone in the college community-even if you 
were not personally asked. The only requirement is that all submission 
for publication must be signed. They may be dropped off at the College 
Center or sent to the paper via inter-campus mail.

that the paragraphs of President Sample 's

by President Frederick P. Sample 

One who has known Lebanon 
Valley College for ten, twenty, 
forty, or sixty years finds little dif- 
ficulty in reciting changes that have 
occurred on our campus. Much 
pleasure is enjoyed in telling the tales of 
yesterday and in taking some credit for 
the progress toward today. That pleasure 
should not be denied anyone who has 
known and loved the College. 

Reciting the dreams and desires for 
tomorrow is also a pleasure, however 
much that recitation is associated with 
challenge, responsibility, and plain hard 
work. Many of my dreams have come 
true just within the past year or two. 
Many changes have taken place for better 
and for worse. Today's students, pro- 
grams and problems cannot be neglected 
as one dreams of improvements and 
changes, but neither can the future be 
denied as we are engaged in our daily 
obligations and responsibilities. 

Because my hopes for the future, both 
near and far future, seem to be endless, I 
shall concentrate on one. I recognize that 
the survival of Lebanon Valley College 
is confronted by an ever increasing num- 
ber of potential catastrophes in the same 
way as is the survival of our nation or 

any other institution. In a practical way 
this confrontation makes it impossible 
to evolve one change without considera- 
tion of many others. Despite, however, 
my many desires and my recognition that 
a change does not occur in isolation, I 
shall focus on only one. In advance I 
plead guilty perchance to both oversim- 
plification and excessive idealism. 

A small college should take maximal 
advantage of its being small. So should 
it take maximal advantage of its being 
liberal arts, church-related, concerned for 
the intellectual and concerned for inter- 
personal relationships throughout the 
Campus. It appears to me that some- 
times, even many times, these advantages 
and concerns of LVC are cast to the 
winds as we kneel to the pressures and 
worship of credits, grades, grade point 
averages, examinations, deadlines, and 

Expectations and goals are as helpful 
in meeting his or her academic needs as 
they are in meeting one's social, physi- 
cal, and economic needs. Perhaps these 
expectations and goals are absolutely nec- 
essary. They certainly are the privilege of 
an institution which chooses to confer de- 
grees upon those who reach the goals 
and expectations. 

I am not convinced, however, that the 
only legitimate intellectual pilgrimage to 
Lebanon Valley College's goals and ob- 
jectives for the individual is through the 
maze of credits, grades, examinations, 
deadlines, and schedules we now pre- 
scribe. Not everyone reaches an expected 
sound body through performance on the 
basketball court. Not everyone reaches an 
expected level of good citizenship by 
reading ten books on the subject. Not 
everyone need meet the goals and ex- 
pectations for a degree from Lebanon 
Valley College by accumulation of 120 
credits in the same way in the class- 
room and laboratory. Perhaps somel 

If the goals and objectives and ex- 
pectations are worth their salt, I am sure 
there is more than one way to reach 
them. There are many ways, and I think 
there would be great vitality and strength 
and stimulation in a wide variety of 
ways to meet the bachelor degree re- 

I do not desire any lessening of ex-

It might be interesting to see a 
poll taken of all LVC students re- 
garding their bpinion (favorable or 
unfavorable) of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege as a whole. Despite the tendancy of 
many students here to consider them- 
selves as martyrs at the hands of The Po- 
wers That Be, it is my opinion that such 
a poll would reveal a generally favorable 
opinion of this college by its students. 
My own impressions of the Valley dur- 
ing my first semester here have been fa- 
vorable in most instances, but I do be- 
lieve that improvement is needed in cer- 
tain respects. 

In the academic area, the greatest pro- 
blem seems to be a lack of enthusiasm. 
The intellectual excitement which one 
associates with institutions of "higher 
learning" seem to be at a rather low lev- 
el here. Certainly much of this disinter- 
est is a carry-over on the students' part 
from high school; much results from so- 
cial pressures to "get a college educa- 
tion," which too often means obtaining 
a diploma solely for its value in the job 
market. However, in my opinion this col- 
lege could do much to create a cli- 
mate of greater academic involvement. 
Suggestions which merit serious consid- 
eration include: 

1. The elimination of required courses 
in English Composition (provided that a 
competency test is passed), Foreign Lan- 
guages, Religion, and Mathematics. 

2. The creation of more interdiscipli- 
nary courses. Hopefully, these courses 
would afford a student the opportunity 
to utilize his entire educational back- 
ground to examine various areas of con- 
temporary concern. 

3. More flexibility in the choice of a 
major. This could include the creation of 
a Liberal Arts major and a General 
Science major. It could allow students 
with an interest in two distinct fields to 
draw up a major which would combine 
courses from the two departments in- 

4. The modification or elimination 
the traditional grading system, especially 
in advanced courses. Instead, the profe$. 
sor could submit a written evaluation o 
each student. 

5. More flexibility in course schedu] 
ing-for instance, the creation of mo te 
one and two-credit courses. 

6. The institution on a college-wi(] e 
basis of a program in which each stu 
dent would evaluate each course h e 
takes and have the opportunity to make 
suggestions for improvement. 

Overall, I feel that the college should 
try to become more concerned with the 
academic needs and desires of each stu- 
dent as an individual, and this can seldom 
be accomplished by rigid adherence to 
a set of general or departmental re- 
quirements. I also feel that the college 
should make more of an attempt to ac- 
tively encourage students to participate 
in programs which would expand the 
learning experience beyond the class- 
room, such as independent or commun- 
ity studies. In short, Lebanon Valley 
should strive to achieve the kind of at- 
mosphere in which students truly have 
the desire to learn. 


Socially, I believe that the administra- 
tion is going to have to allow the stu- 
dents more control over their own lives 
outside the classroom. The days when 
the college could act as a sort of bene- 
volent father-figure for its students are 
long gone. Whether or not the present ad- 
ministration still believes in the old doc- 
trine of in loco parentis, many of the 
social restriction at Valley continue to 
bear traces of this philosophy. In line 
with the idea that students should be al- 
lowed more control over their personal 
lives, the most important step would be 
the elimination of institutional policy. 
If complete elimination is impossible, at 
least the enforcement responsible should 
rest on the administration and not on the 
students. This would relieve the senate 
of the obligation to enforce rules which 
the students dislike intensely and yel

What is the most urgent thing in 
need of change at Lebanon Valley? 
Depending on who is asked the 
answer might range from the cost 
of using the game room in the Cen- 
ter, open house hours, chapel programs, 
academic requirements, Mr. Smith, etc. 
But perhaps the two words appearing 
most often will be "the fence." It is al- 
most like the weather in that everyone 
talks about it but nobody does anything 
about it. At least nobody does anything 
about it in a constructive sense. Those 
who would seek to dismantle it are en- 
tirely mixed-up in their sense of priorit- 
ies. By acting against the fence they are 
not attacking the cause of the problem 
only the result. 

Let's look at the facts. After re- 
turning in September and first seeing 
the fence, President Sample said he put 
it up primarily to protect the grass and 
as a side benefit it would also (because 
of its aesthetic value) please the Board of 
Trustees, the alumni, and the money- 
givers. So now that we have the causes 
of the problem, what can we do about 
them? Here is one suggestion: 

First, well exchange our Board of 
Trustees with that of Berkley, California. 
That would work out well considering 
that our trustees would serve to cancel 
out the radical element on the Berkley 
campus and thus return the community 
to the quiet, dull life it used to know 
and love. While at the same time the 
arrival of the Berkley Trustees here, a 
community capable of wiping out the 
faintest trace of liberalism in a radical, 
would have no damaging effect on the 
present plans of the college. 

The alumni question is more formid- 
able but can be solved. For instance, 
Penn State has so many alumni already 
that a change of several thousand of them 
would practically go unnoticed. Besides, 

homecoming at University Park is mud 
more impressive than Annville. And sins 
nobody who went to college seems to be 
able to remember his classmates after; 
few years absence, who would know tin 

The problem of money-givers is prob- 
ably the most troublesome question oi 
all. There is no second team ready to 
step in and take over when the first c 
pulled out. Where does one go to g« 
new money-givers? The solution to thi 1 
question comes in conjunction with the 
one to the final cause of torment-* 

It is a well-known fact that the astro- 
turf in the Orange Bowl is in such bad 
shape that it will be up for sale at the 
end of the present football season. I' 
we act soon enough well be able to buy 
some or all of it at a bargain price and use 
it to cover the tender turf surround^ 
the center and any other place in dange*

But how does that solve the p r °'

It's very simple. When word gets around 
of how we solved the grass proble" 1 
people will come from miles around tc

By way of introduction, this is a re- 

f a poem I wrote sometime in 

wrlte . lir 1970. It's about summer. This 

it's prose.) 
I have an ice cream cone. A carbon-

L ° P at one time of another. And like 
the"others, it is melting, dripping on the 
collection of broken shells at my feet. 

flavors: vanilla, chocolate, and 
'each- My hand is very stickey by now, 
from the drooling of the cone. 

It's a release. I mean, it's like a bath 
• a lot of ways, running around one's 
fingers like dirty water (the kind you 
see in dishpans after ice cream socials 
in old Disney movies), mixed as it is 
w ifh sweat from the under-knuckles. 
One always grips the cone too firmly. 
They are all too easy to crush, you know. 

I was looking at my atlas, at Norway. 
It's cool there. It is so very hot here, 
a lot like the heated tray of sand in 
which one's optometrist heats plastic 
temples for bending, so that they fit the 
wearer perfectly. Like a glove. Like snow 
on a roof, a snow eaten with a bit of van- 
illa extract and sugar. Like our younger 

The ice cream globe on the top of my 
cone looks like the American hemisphere 
licked clean by a molten meteor. Some- 
thing the Japanese would put in a cheap 
movie, right? You know them all. Re- 
member The Mysteriansl 

One cannot sleep with the crickets 
(Continued from Page 2, Col. 5) 
are virtually powerless to change. 

If institutional policy is eliminated, 
the Student Government Executive Com- 
mittee would have the responsibility to 
draw up major social regulation. In my 
opinion restrictions on drinking (by per- 
sons of legal age) and intervisitation 
should be eliminated, but I feel that re- 
strictions even in these areas would be 
much more acceptable to the students 
if they were the responsibility of the 
Executive Committee rather than the 
trustees. The senate would continue to 
enforce its own rules as well as those of 
the Executive Committee. 

As President of the Freshman Class, 
1 also think that the college needs to 
change its policies regarding freshmen in 
some respects. For instance, the rules 
which prohibit freshmen from leaving 
campus (until Thanksgiving) and having 
cars should at least be modified. I also 
f eel that the White Hat Review Board 
should attempt to come up with a mean- 
ln gful and mature program for the Class 
°f 1976. White Hats are needed not as 
cheerleaders or drill sargeants but as 
^scussion leaders and student advisors 
whom freshmen can come with any

The first part of this review is more 
or less a public service. Since the release 
of Surf's Up (reviewed briefly a few 
issues back), there has been a resurgence 
of interest in the Beach Boys and their 
music, especially their post-surfer albums, 
which have for years gone relatively un- 
noticed. These albums are hard to get 
because they have been out of print for 
about two years. The Beach Boys' label 
during those years (Capitol Records) has 
stopped pressing these albums, ostens- 
ibly because they simply didn't sell, but 
also because of disputes between them- 
selves and the Beach Boys (over the con- 
tent of these albums) that were only re- 
cently made public. These albums are al- 
most impossible to get in record stores 
(Capitol still presses the bigger-selling 
pre-1966 Beach Boys albums), but chances 
are good that many of these albums have 
not been released by Capitol and are 
still available from the factory. There- 
fore, here are the names and code num- 
bers of these albums and the address to 
which you should write if you are in- 
terested: The address is Capitol Records, 
Inc., Hollywood and Vine Streets, Holly- 
wood, California; zip 90028. The albums 
are as follows... 

1. ) Pet Sounds (Capitol DT 2458): 
their first post-surfer album, considered 
by many to be their best until Surf's Up; 
features "Sloop John B." and "Wouldn't 
It Be Nice".., and other romantic, per- 
fectly-executed cuts. A must. 

2. ) Smiley Smile (Brother T-9001: 
distributed by Capitol): the first and last 
album on Brother Records while under 
Capitol contract, it features music in- 
spired by Vegetarianism and meditation. 
About half the songs, including "Heroes 
and Villains," written by Brian Wilson 
and Van Dyke Parks for the aborted Smile 
album, which may be released this year, 
five years after most of it was recorded. 

3. ) Wild Honey (Capitol ST-2859): 
an album of rock and roll with strong 
Rhythm & Blues overtones that con- 
trasts sharply with the mellow Smiley 
Smile. It features the hard-driving title 
cut and a well-done cover of Stevie 
Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her." 
It is the last true rock and roll album 
the Beach Boys released. 

4. ) Friends (Capitol ST-2895): a soft, 
melodic album recalling traces of both 
Pet Sounds and Smiley Smile; the title 
cut is heartwarmingly nostalgic, with 
lines like "I talked your folks out of 
making you cut off your hair" and one 
of Brian Wilson's best melodies. Also

I did a lot of personal surveying 
since the concert and found the large 
majority of those in attendance that I 
asked thought the concert was tremen- 
dous. There can be no disputing the 
degree of musicianship each member 
of the band had, especially the bass 
guitar player and Miller. Miller intro- 
duced the bass player as one of the best 
in the country and I'm sure anyone 
who heard the concert would agree. 

Miller seemed to be haughty and 
self-centered in his stage deportment 
and I was informed later by a member 
of the organizing committee that "Miller 
was the most obnoxious musician I 
ever met." 

The organization of the concert was 
great. The audience was given a pleas- 
ingly mellow group of selections at the 
beginning which gradually advanced to 
the "heavies". The climax of the concert 
came about very suddenly when Miller, 
obviously getting into his music, stopped 
the band in thejniddle of a tune and 
had his sound engineers increase the 

loudness of the entire band to an almost 
deafening degree (especially to those 
seated in the first few rows). From 
then to the grand finale the whole band 
was "cooking". It didn't take the aud- 
ience long to get into the music as 
everyone was on his feet for the last 
45 minutes of the show. 

I was impressed by all the equip- 
ment. He had an echoplex (a single- 
band recording and immediate playback 
device) playing through his amps for a 
large portion of the concert which gave 
him his unique electrical sound. It was 
great, to hear effects, other than feed- 
back, at a live performance. 

I also noticed how each member 
of the band watched Steve constantly 
and played together all the time. That 
is a sign of a truly professional group. 

There's something to be said about 
the Fireball Kids, also. The band was 
well-rehearsed and they remained tight 
throughout the whole set. If they could 
develop a sound unique to themselves 
they may have a chance at the pro- 
fessional circuit.

Douglas Dahms struggles to keep his man from escaping in a three-way match 
with PMC and Deleware Valley. Our young team's record is now an even 7-7. 

Johnson Scores Records 

by Mike Rhoads 

While the Lebanon Valley basketball 
team continues to pile up victories, 
the biggest news item of late has been 
the prolific scoring of Don Johnson, 
the brilliant junior from Baltimore. Don 
started all the commotion on the eighth 
of last month with a 49-point scoring 
effort against Washington College, break- 
ing the LVC single-game scoring record. 
After tallying "only" 59 points in the 
next two games, Johnson bounced back 
last Wednesday against Susquehanna, 
registering an unbelievable 56 points 
to lead the Dutchment to a 96-79 tri 
umph. This effort not only set another 
new school mark but also was a single- 
game scoring record for the Middle 
Atlantic Conference (College Division). 
Hitting on 24 of 34 field goals and 
8 of 10 free throws, Don upped his 
career point total to 1237, second 
only to Howie Landa (1936 points 
from 1951-1955) in the annals of Leb- 
anon Valley. Johnson also is within 
shooting distance of the single-season 

scoring record for the college. 

However, Johnson's heroics should 
not obscure the fine work of the team 
as a whole. Starting the semester with 
an unconvincing 64-62 decision over 
F&M, the Dutchment quickly regained 
their touch, reaching 100 points in each 
of their next three victories (over Johns 
Hopkins, Muhlenburg, and Washington). 
After losing a heartbreaker to PMC by 
a 75-64 margin, the team rebounded 
two nights later for a 104-82 victory 
over Swarthmore. Going into last Sat- 
urday's game with Carngegie- Mellon, the 
Dutchment sported a gaudy 18-3 overall 
record. With eight league wins against 
only one loss, Coach Gaeckler's cagers 
are assured of a spot in the MAC 
Southern Division Playoffs, which will 
be held at PMC on March 3 and 4. 

Meanwhile, the LVC wrestlers have 
evened their seasonal log at 7-7 with 
consecutive victories over PMC, Hopkins, 
Dickinson, Haverford, and Messiah. Lead- 
ing the way has been Alan Shortell, 
who has registered three decisions and 
four pins in his last seven matches.

pectation. To the contrary a substantial 
increase could be justified. I would like 
to see, however, the introduction of a 
program that would necessitate a stu- 
dent's reaching expectations in three ma- 
jor program areas and would allow for 
his or her reaching those expectations in 
many different ways. Striving to reach 
carefully defined and described expecta- 
tions seems to ring more true of a real 
educational process than do the accum- 
ulation of credits and the memorizing 
for examinations which seem to strait 
jacket us at times. 

Quickly let me give a suggestion for 
the design of three major areas. First, 
an area of common experiences should 
be shared by all students. Some of these 
experiences might be specific academic 
courses. Some might be inter-disciplinary 
programs. Some could be field work or 
field trip kinds of experiences. Some 
might be in providing services to cam- 
pus, community, state, nation, or world. 

The accomplishments and participa- 
tion in these experiences would neces- 
sitate evaluation in some way by the super- 
vising faculty. I doubt that the usual A, 
B, C method is the answer to illustrate a 
student's having shared in these exper- 
iences in a way befitting a college degree. 

Second, general education should be 
expected of all students. This general ed- 
ucation should be expressed in terms of 
goals and expectations, not in terms of 
credits. What level of literacy is expected 
in the social sciences, natural sciences, 
fine arts and humanities? What proficien- 
cy is expected in a foreign language? With 
expectations before the student at initial 
matriculation academic responsibility and 
freedom would be united immediately. 
The student would begin a pilgrimage 
toward expectations. Procedures would 
be determined, but they also could be 

The regular classroom program would 

be provided as an assistance toward the 
expectations, not as an end in itself. 
Sometimes the student would forego the 
assistance of the formal classroom in 
favor of the library or some other assis- 
tance. It would be necessary to deter- 
mine periodically the strengths and weak- 
nesses of a student. It would be most 
difficult to determine a person's having 
reached the levels expected and there- 
fore having qualified for a degree, but I 
think it can be done. 

Third, a major area of study should 
be expected of all students. This area 
again might be described by the depart- 
ment in terms of expectations rather 
than credits. A student must be guided 
carefully within the department, but not 
all students would need travel exactly 
the same pathway. The faculty of the 
department would determine goals and 
objectives having been reached by the 
students. For some students it would 
take five years and for others only three. 

Having met the expectations of the 
three areas, the student would qualify 
for a degree from Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege. In some ways this program might 
not be greatly different from our present 
program. In other ways it would be a 
radical departure. It would be most dif- 
ficult to build and to initiate, and unless 
education is more important than credits 
it is not worth trying.

features an instrumental based on the 
old muzak stand-by "Diamond Head" 
but thoroughly re-arranged by Brian and 
"Be Here In The Morning," a naive but 
unremittingly appealing rave-up of Peaches 
and Herb, right down to the vocal 

5. ) 20/20 (Capitol SKAO-133): the 
final "fresh" album on Capitol before 
the Beach Boys packed up and re- 
established their Brother label under con- 
tract to Warner Brothers Recrods in 
1970. It is a mixed bag of styles, with 
mellow Brian Wilson tunes ("I Went To 
Sleep," "Time To Get Alone") con- 
trasted against rocking tunes in the Wild 
Honey tradition by Dennis Wilson ("All 
I Want To Do") and tasty covers of rock 
standards by Carl Wilson ("I Can Hear 
Music," "Bluebirds Over the Mountain") 
that achieve a middle-ground between 
the sharp stylings of the other cuts. The 
true stand-outs, however, don't fit the 
pattern. They are "Cotton Fields," the 
old country folk number arranged with 
great sensitivity by Brian and Alan 
Jardine, Bruce Johnston's lovely instru- 
mental entitled "The Nearest Faraway 
Place," Dennis Wilson's "Never Learn 
Not To Love" with lyrics by, of all 
people, Charles Manson, and "Cabines- 
sence," a breathtaking song with sym- 
phonic arrangement that was penned by 
Brian and Van Dyke Parks (again, a 
Smile left-over). All in all, a grab-bag 
assortment of great musical tidbits in the 
best way to describe 20/20. My personal 
favorite. And finally, 

6. ) Close-Up (Capital SWBB-253), a 
double album of old surfer favorites 
such as "Little Honday" and "409." A 
good conversation piece. 

The Sunflower album (Brother/Re- 
prise RS 6382) is readily available and 
quite good as will, featuring Brian's 
lengthy "Cool, Cool Water," and along 
with the above records and Surf's Up is 
part of the continuing tradition of fine, 
mellow, thoroughly enjoyable Beach Boys 
music. These albums will be a prize 
addition to your collection, if you don't 
mind the mail-order hassle. It will be 
* worth your effort in the end, though. 

And now, some mini-reviews. 

Now that it's been out for about five 
months, what is my reaction to John 
Lennon's Imagine (Apple SW 3379)? 
Simply this: musically, it has its immed- 
iate predecessor (John Lennon /Plastic 
Ono Band) beaten by a country mile (as 
"Imagine," "Jealous Guy," and "Oh My 
Love" graphically demonstrate), but it 
does not have the sheer excitement (via 
tension) that its forerunner did. Un- 
melodic as it was, Plastic Ono Band 
maintained listener interest and involve- 
ment, simply because of its gnawing, 
tearing lyric content (much like one 
tends to stare at a grossly mutilated 
body). Imagine has some high spots 
musically, but except for "How Can You 
Sleep" (Lennon's blast of McCartney and 
Co.), it does not offer the anguish that 
Plastic Ono Band (and Lennon in general) 
expresses so well. And Lennon without 
anguish unfortunately tends to be boring 
Lennon, good music or no. 

On the other hand, Paul McCarntney' 
strong suit has always been his music 

rather than his messages. Which makes 
the realities of his new group Wings' 
first release, Wild Life (Apply 3386) 
disappointing and hard to accept. His 
first solo album offered promise and 
Little else, as many brilliant ideas ("Junk,' 
for example) weren't given enough atten( 
tion in the development stages. This was 
largely due to the fact the Paul un- 
leased the excesses of his musical mega- 
lomania on this effort, playing every 
instrument (including some for which he 
has no apparent affinity, notably drums,) 
doing all the writing, and all but a few 
of the vocals, leaving those to lovely 
Linda. Ram was to be an improvement, 
allowing McCartney the freedom to work 
on full lush arrangements (so vital to 
most of his songs) by hiring studio help 
in the form of a drummer and guitarist 
as well as competent orchestral arrang- 
ing. The result was a delightful and per- 
fectly realized album and a memorable 
single ("Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey..) 
snatched from it. Wings' Wild Life, how- 
ever, reverts to pre-Ram style. The songs 
themselves are rarely as good as on Ram, 
but nonetheless they are inoffensive and 
could have been made into true musical 
confections. Once again, however, they 
are left half-baked. This in itself would 
not be totally destructive under normal 
situations, but Linda McCartney's vo- 
cals and keyboards on this album aren't 
normal. She reeks as a pianist, knowing 
only elementary chords, and is consis- 
tently off-key in her backing vocals. With 
nothing but a bare arrangement to cover 
these flaws, the result becomes as laugh- 
able as it is disheartening. Paul McCartney 
can do better, as Ram showed, but his 
best work is still his Beatle work, per- 
haps because Linda didn't help out. The 
only outstanding song on the entire 
Wild Life album ("outstanding" being 
equated with Beatle quality) is "Some 
People Never Know," and it sounds so 
anemic that it screams for support by 
way of some careful arranging. Paul 
must do better. He should be giving us 
more "Let It Be's" instead of refried 
McCartney crap. 

In Brief. . . Killer, by Alice Cooper 
(Warner Bros. BS 2567): At last an Alice 
Cooper album that can stand by itself. 
Love It To Death was a step in the right 
direction, but this is the first Cooper re- 
lease that doesn't need the stage show to 
support it. Vastly improved musician- 
ship is the key. "Desperado" is the best 
cut on this, a good solid album of hard 
rock. . . The Concert For Bangla Desh 
(Apple STCX 3385): You've heard all of 
the music on this triple set elsewhere 
and done better, but buy it anyway, as 
five bucks out of the price goes to 
UNICEF. Besides, where else can you 
hear Dylan, Harrison, Russel, and Starr 

In the next issue, the best new album 
of 1972 (so far); one hint is that it's 
British. Plus new Emerson, Lake, & Pal- 
mer and King Crimson as well as the 
long-awaited Paul Simon solo album.

Headlines like "Lebanon Valley i ev . 
els Luxembourg" have been caught i,, 
mid-air as they wait for a print-out on a 
locked tintype. Plans have been in mo. 
tion since last year to send our basket 
ball team and a group of supporters to 
Luxembourg over the '72 Easter vacj. 
tion to play a series of games with na- 
tional teams, but arrangements keep g e 
ting entangled in red tape. 

It is a question of who will move 
first-Coach Gaeckler can't make con- 
crete plans until Dr. Sample approves the 
proposition, while Dr. Sample needs an 
exact itinerary before he can present the 
proposal for voting. Opposite and equal 
forces don't move an object and so there 
are strong reservations as to whether the 
team can make the trip this year. Yet as 
Coach Gaeckler says, "We can get started 
right now to raise money in hope of 
going this year, but if not, it will go f 0r 
next year's trip," while those students 
planning to accompany the team could 
still make the trip this Easter and still at 
reduced rates if there was an affinity 
group of 25 people. 

"We have a good team this year, with 
many of our players coming back," says

Coach Gaeckler, and speaking as an ex- 
perienced past-participant in such nation- 
al games, Gaeckler would like to see the 
team have this opportunity to go abroad. 
It will cost a lot of money though, and 
this is where the entire LVC student 
body must put forth some initiative. 
Transportation from Lebanon Valley to 
Luxembourg will cost approximately 
$173.00 not including passports ($10.00 
from Annville to Kennedy National Air- 
port and $163.00 from Kennedy to Lux- 
embourg). Twelve players and two coach- 
es will be going which amounts to a sum 
of about $2400.00. Once there each 
individual will finance his own expenses 
(about $10.00 per day), however the 
problem lies in raising the initial $2400. 
Student Council has been working with 
this aspect but as of yet has not been able 
to solve it. 

The trip tentatively will last seven 
days, with the team leaving on the last 
day of classes and returning March 30. 
They will play a three-day tournament 
in Luxembourg with the possibility oi 
additional games at Rossdorf and Gue- 
sing. There will also be time for sight- 
seeing in Frankfurt and other cities.

Washington, D.C.-In hearings before Sen'. Gale McGee's (Wyo.) Ap- 
propriations Subcommittee last August, it was revealed that a number 
of powerful Wyoming wool growers had hired airborne gunners to shoot 
American bald and golden eagles. 

James Vogan, a pilot for Buffalo Flying Service in Buffalo, Wyo., 
admitted to the Subcommittee that he had participated in killing of an 
estimated 570 eagles. In doing so, he implicated Herman Werner, owner 
of a number of Wyoming properties, including the Bolton Ranch Inc., 
in Casper, where much of the killing was done. When the news broke, 
citizens throughout the country condemned the killings and demanded 
swift and adequate punishment for them. 

A recent check of the records reveals that those primarily implicated 
in the killings of the country's national symbol have gone unpunished, 
although some minor functionaries have been minimally fined. The main 
perpetrators of the killings (ie. Werner and the other woolgrowers who 
hired the pilots and the gunners), however, remain unpunished. 

Another startling fact in the case is that Werner and the other involved 
woolgrowers hold grazing permits and licenses which confer grazing priv- 
ileges on Federally-owned land under provisions of the Taylor Grazing 
Act. Despite the fact that some, if not all, of the killings apparently took 
place on these Federal lands, Werner and the rest continue to use the 
land just as they always have, without regard to the rules of the license. 

Included in the rules are the laws prohibiting the taking of American 
bald or golden eagles without a permit. Werner and the rest blatantly 
violated these rules by wantonly slaughtering a vanishing species. The Na- 
tional Wildlife Federation sees no reason why they should now be re- 
warded by the Government with the use of Federally-owned lands. 

Several interesting sideline developments may result from the situa- 
tion. The Governor of Wyoming and the Wyoming Wool Growers Asso- 
ciation have announced plans to conduct their own predator control pro- 
gram. This lands squarely on top of a recent announcement on the Dick 
Cavett television show by Interior Secretary Rogers C.B. Morton that 
will end the Federal government's controversial program of killing pre- 
dator animals by widespread poisons. "I think hopefully this year we 
will get. . .out of the killing business", Morton said. He added that a bill 
has been drafted and probably will go to Congress in "the first quarter 
of the year".

Employment Forecast 


March 13th College Chapel 8:00 P.M. 

The College Placement Council re- 
ported in "Higher Education and Nation- 
al Affairs" that in a survey of 835 em- 
ployers "the first upward movement in 
three years" in job prospects for college 
graduates has been found. "In an average 
of all disciplines, the council siad, em- 
ployers expect a five percent increase in 
hiring." This increase is forecast both at 
the Ph.D. and bachelor's level with a de- 
crease expected at the master's level. 

It is expected that 39,580 will be 
hired at the bachelor's level -9% gain.~ 

"Despite the overall gain in employ- 
ment, the employers said they plan 13% 
fewer recruiting visits to campuses." Rea- 
sons for this decrease are higher ac- 
ceptance rates for those candidates inter- 
viewed, the greater number of applicants 
who go directly to personnel offices, and 
referrals from other than college sources. 

"Competition will still be keen," said 
a council spokesman. "Students can't af- 
ford to sit back and wait for a job to 
come looking for them." 

Job prospects among the group stud- 
ied appear best for those majoring in 
engineering and business, including ac- 


One of the most ambitious and ex- 
citing social events which this college 
(and probably this entire metropolitan 
area) has seen for many years will take 
place the weekend of March 17, as the 
Freshman Class will present a combined 
Grease Band Concert-Dance Marathon in 
the West Dining Hall. All profits from 
This event will be given to the Spring Arts 

At 7:30 P. M. on Friday evening the 
three days of activities will begin with 
the reappearance of the ever-popular 
and ever-entertaining Grease Band. (No, 
the Grease Band is Not dead-Its mem- 
bers have been in seclusion for the past 
several months, working on "new" songs 
and outlandish innovations to add to 
their already slick act.) Anyone who 
hasn't already seen this aggtegation is in 
for a once-in-a-lifetime experience of nos- 
talgia, while those who are familiar with 
this group should be prepared for a few 
surprises which, along with the excellent 
musicianship of the Greasers, should 
make for a thoroughly enjoyable even- 
ing. At 10:00. however, the real action of 
the weekend will begin, as those who 
have had the courage and confidence 
to register for the marathon will begin 
their efforts to capture the Grand Prize, 
which will be a highly usable fifty bucks. 
However, this modest sum (as well as 
the second and third prizes of $30 and 
$20 respectively) may be raised as the 
fateful date draws nearer. Despite in- 
flation, even the third prize money should 
be a welcome addition to the pocketbook 
of any Valley student. 

Most of the music for the marathon 
will be taped "Golden Oldies" recalling 
the greatest days of rock from Bill Haley 
and the Comets up until the present 
(if any of the wearied contestants can 
last that long). At intervals, there will 
also be live appearances by various cam- 
pus bands. 

Registration for the marathon (which 
includes free admission to the preceding 
concert) is only two dollars per couple. 
Don't wait till the last minute, though, 
because floor space is limited 1 Tickets 
for the concert (including free admission 
to the West Dining Hall at any time dur- 
ing the weekend) will be one dollar each. 
Don't miss this event of the Century - 
it will be something to tell your grand- 

counting. (A gain of 9% is forecast in the 
business disciplines. 20% gain is expected 
in sciences, mathematics, and other tech- 
nical majors.) 

"On the darker side, prospects are 
not as good for students majoring in 
non-technical disciplines other than bus- 
iness. Primarily, these are the students in 
liberal arts. They face the prospect of a 
3% loss." 

In another publication put out by 
H.E.W. entitled "Career Education" it 
is reported that the curriculums of our 
colleges are not "doing their job" in pre- 
paring students for careers. According to 
the report "nearly 2.5 million students 
leave the formal educational system of 
the U. S. each year without adequate 
preparation for a career. More persons 
are graduating from a 4-year college with 
a bachelor's degree than there are jobs 
for degree holders. By the end of this 
decade eight out of 10 jobs in America 
will not require a baccalaurate degree." 

HEW calls for an examination of the 
educational structure in order that it may 
better fulfill its responsibility to provide 
its students with the preparation "to 
live a productive and rewarding life." 

"The fundamental concept of career 
education is that all educational ex- 
periences, curriculum, instruction, and 
counseling should be geared to prepara- 
tion for economic independence and an 
appreciation for the dignity of work." 
The program basically would attempt 
to expose the student to all possibilities 
in all career fields. By this means each 
individual will continue in the formal 
educational process only to the point 
necessary in order to follow his career 
preference. In other words, there would 
be less pressure for high school seniors to 
preceed automatically to college-where 
a great many of them do not belong. 

However, until such a program evolves 
or the economic picture improves the 
1972 graduate can look forward to only 
slight improvement in job-hunting over 
his friends from the class of '71. 


On Thursday, March 9, 1972, the 
Lebanon Valley College Economic Lec- 
ture Series will present Dr. Yuan-Li Wu 
whose topic will be "Communist China: 
Alternate Paths to Economic Develop- 

Dr. Wu was born in China in 1920. 
After attending the University of Shang- 
hai, he went to England where he ob- 
tained his B.S. degree with First Class 
Honors from the London School of 
Economics and Political Science. He re- 
ceived the Ph.D. degree from London in 

Prior to joining the University of San 
Francisco in 1960, Dr. Wu taught at 
Hofstra College, at Standford University, 
and at Marquette University, where he 
also served as Director of the Institute 
for Asian Studies. 

He is the author and co-author of 
books and articles on the economy of 
Communist China for which he is re- 
cognized internationally. His "An Eco- 
nomic Survey of Communist China" 
in 1956 was the first volume on the sub- 
ject published in the West. In the theo- 
retical field, he is the co-author of 
"Mathematical Programing and the Eco- 
nomics Analysis of the Firm ". 

In addition to his other many ac- 
tivities, Dr. Wu has been a consultant to 
the Hoover Institution on War, Revolu- 
tion and Peace at Standford since 1960. 
More recently, he was given the Meritor- 
ious Civilian Service Award of the De- 
partment of Defense for his service to the 
federal government. 

The Lecture series established in 1962 
is sponsored by the Department of Econo- 
mics and Business Administration through 
The cooperation of the People's National 
Bank of Lebanon for the enrichment of 
the student in this and other areas of 
study at the College, and as a public 
service to bankers and other businessmen 
in the community. 


The 27th Annual Religious Emphasis 
Week to be held March 14-16 will fea- 
ture two men that are definitely part of 
the current religious movement in this 
country. The main chapel address at 
11:00 a.m. Tuesday and Wednesday will 
be given by the Rev. William E. Pannell. 
Rev. PannelPs speciality is relating the 
Christian message to the Black commun- 
ity. He is advertised as a "Negro Evangel- 
ist with answers for today's frustrations 
and problems." 

For the past 15 years he has become 

well known in churches, camps, and 
Christian conferences, as well as, through 
the radio and television media. Mr. Pan- 
nell has authored numbers of articles 
and a book entitled My Friend the En- 

As an associate of Tom Skinner As- 
sociates, Inc., he has a preaching minis- 
try of reconciliation, which seeks to pla- 
cate people, as well as, aiding the Church 
to recognize its mission in the world. 

Mr. Pannell has the tone of a prophet 
in his preaching. As the Director of the 
Campus Ministry of TSAI, he seeks to 
communicate the relevancy of Jesus 
Christ to black students on black college 

On Wednesday, March 15 at 8:00 p.m. 
the speaker will be Scott Ross, a member 
of the "Jesus Freak" movement. He is 
one of an increasing number who has 
"dropped out of the drug culture and 
found meaning in Jesus." According to 

Ross, "drugs became more and more a 
part of my life. I found myself inside a 
funnel that was rapidly closing in on 
me. I was looking for life and nearly 
discovered death." After hearing a sim- 
ple country minister, Ross made a com- 
plete break with his former life. He be- 
came a disk-jockey on a gospel show. 
One listener was so impressed with his 
message that she donated a barn which 
was transformed into a "Love Inn." 
The Inn was established to help others 
leave drugs and give their lives new 
purpose through Christ. They conduct 
regular Bible studies and operate a tele- 
phone counseling service. On weekends 
the barn becomes a coffeehouse for 
local youths who want to drop by for 
live rock music and talk with the per- 
formers about Jesus. 

Orthodoxy at the Love Inn is tradi- 
tional Protestant fundamentalism, with 
emphasis on literal interpretation of the 
Bible and divine judgment and a con- 
viction that the second coming of Christ 
is imminent. 

Religious Emphasis Week will also 
include a Love Feast on Tuesday night 
at 10:00 p.m. which is a service in the 
United Methodist tradition that includes 
the sharing of bread. 

On Thursday, March 16 a movie en- 
titled "His Land" will be shown. 

DUring the week there will be an of- 
fering received for Pakistan Refugee Re-

Mr. Paul Pickard 

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE is published bi-weekly by the students of Lebanon Val- 
ley College except during examination periods end vacations. LA VIE is printed by 
Boyer Press, Lebanon, Pa. Newspaper offices are located in the College Center, low- 
er level. Telephone-867-3561, ext. 316. Subscriptions are available for $2.50 per 
semester. The opinions expressed in the newspaper are those of the editors, and do 
not represent the official opinion of the college. 


It would seem that many students are unaware that important deci- 
sions are being made right now that will affect daily life— especially that 
of underclassmen. The whole student governing system is now under 
review. Last week an open meeting was held to gather student opinion- 
no one came. 

LA VIE has frequently asserted that the student body has no influ- 
ence on decisions because it always seems that the process has been com- 
pleted before students become aware of what decisions have been made. 
Leading examples are the College Center plans, the fence, and most 
probably the same will be true of the plans for the new music building. 

However, in the Student Government Review there can be no reason 
other than student stupidity if we do not express our viewpoint force- 
fully. The Committee will listen to and wants to hear student opinion. 
The student representatives are dedicated to trying to enact positive 
changes to make student government more responsible. But they are 
only representatives of the Student Body. When they speak for the stu- 
dents as a whole, their words gain weight only when they are sup- 
ported by visible student sentiment. 

Check the Senate Handbook for the functions of the three branches 
of student government and for a listing of all the rules. There are many 
rules that are unbelievably vague and should be eliminated. Rule No. 10 
lists a 5-point penalty for "any unbecoming behavior" and there is a 
l -point penalty for not keeping the dormitories "in respectable order at 
all times." Dining Hall regulations require "neatness and good groom- 
ing. . . at all times." (I point) 

Also open to change are the Freshmen regulations such as not having 
a car and not being permitted to leave campus before Thanksgiving. It is 
obvious that the program for Freshmen is in need of revision— both the 
orientation and the rules. 

Then there are the institutional rules. The ones most in question are 
No. 3 concerning drinking on campus and, of course, No. 5, the perennial 
question of intervisitation. 

However, the individual rules are relatively minor questions compared 
to an investigation of the whole student government system. In practi- 
cally everyone's opinion the system has not worked as well as expected — 
but for different reasons. The administration feels that especially the 
Senate has been a disappointment because it has been unable to enforce 
the questionable institutional rules and at times has even dared to 
"exceed" its authority. 

Students feel their government system has been given responsibility, 
but no power. In other words the power to make major rules rests with 
the administration; enforcement with student government. Student Gov- 
ernment seems another ploy to placate students without allowing them 
any real power. 

Typically students have a tendancy to become discouraged-this being 
both a result and also the cause of many of the disappointments of the 
past. It would perhaps be better if more students were on campus who re- 
membered the changes that occurred in 1 969 that brought the present 
system into being. Although as usual ten years late, that revision of the 
system could almost be termed radical. 







To the Editor: 

It is a grievous thing that the situa- 
tion which causes me to write lo you has 
occurred at an institution of higher learn- 
ing and sophistication such as ours. Nev- 
ertheless, I am prompted to write you 
this note. The situation to which I refer 
is the relatively recent appearance of a 
certain wooden monstrosity which we 
have all affectionately labeled "The 
Fence." It was erected, so we are told, 
to protect the grass and thereby to please 
visitors and friends of our campus. I find 
the goal of protecting the gramineae in 
the quad and elsewhere to be a commend- 
able one, but I heartily disapprove of the 
method chosen to effect the desired end. 
Why a wooden fence with brick build- 
ings? Perhaps a small brick wall would 
have been better. Too expensive, you 
say? Then how about a hedge, or shrubs, 
or trees planted in the mud spots? A 
wire could be strung around the budding i 
young shrubs, trees, or what-have-you, 
until they could maintain themselves and 
then we would have three desirable bene- 
fits: (1) the solution to the mud prob- 
blem (students can't walk through trees) 
(2) shade in the summer, and (3) an aes- 
thetic attraction to campus visitors. By a 
combination of shrubs and trees, I be- 
lieve that the mud problem could be 

What should be done with the fence? 
I propose that it be taken down and 
stored until a worthwhile use can be 
found for it. Trees and shrubs or a brick 
wall could be put in its place as soon 
as the weather permits. 

A further problem which bothers me 
is our sense of priorities. Granted that 
we must attract future students, should 
we do this by pleasing their aesthetic 
sensibilities or by impressing them with 
our educational plant? I am told, and I 
am unhappily all too aware, of the abys- 
mal shortcomings of our library. Further- 
more, ask any music student about the 
quality of the practice pianos in Engle 
Hall. So we are faced with this ques- 
tion: Does the administration have a 
greater responsibility to the students who 
are presently here to provide them with 
adequate facilities, or to prospective stu- 
dents who might not come here anyway? 
I leave the answer to you. 

Perhaps there is a good psychological 
term to describe the phenomenon which 
we are witnessing presently in our cul- 
tural Garden of Eden. In military terms, 
my father would label this phenomenon 
"Denying strategic access to the enemy." 
I refer to the movement to lock all the 
doors in the college center except one 
(four to be precise), and to deny this en- 
lightened community access to pieces of 
Lebanon Valley College real estate by en- 
closing the aforesaid pieces within fences. 
(Mr. Joyce could give us an historical 
perspective here by discussing the effects 
of enclosure upon the English "peasants" 
of the industrial revolution.) Whatever 
our perspective may be upon this phen- 
omenon, it seems strange to me to deny 
use of college center side doors to a com- 
munity of a thousand because four or 
five people steal equipment from the 
building. If the doors must remain "se- 
cured." then I suggest that we dismantle 
the fence and use it to build a barricade 
in front of all the side doors in order 
to provide additional protection against 
the silverware boys, the kitchenware kid, 
and the stereophone sneak. 

Callimachus said that "A large book 
is a great evil," and so I stop here, not 
wishing to perpetrate a greater evil than 
that which prompted this note in the 
first place. Besides, it's time to go lean 
on the fence some more to see how the 
grass is doing. 

Jim Short 

To the Editor: 

I would like to express my views on 
two subjects. First, "the Fence": it was 
a good idea to put it around the Center 
complex temporarily; that is, it has servedl 

its purpose there, and should now be 
moved or dismantled and sold (I know 
Dr. Riley and President Sample won't 
like this latter idea). Out of the list of 
suggestions the building committee pre- 
sented, I feel that the idea of placing the 
fence along the railroad tracks on the 
Summit Street side is a very good one. 
If it is placed there it can serve two 
purposes: provide a barrier marker for 
the students who park their cars in this 
area, and it could give a new beauty to 
this rather dreary, dirty-looking area of 
the Campus. Besides, the fence will pro- 
vide support for the weed vines that 
grow along the track. 

However, the real purpose of this 
letter is to discuss another subject. That 
subject is security. As one of its defini- 
tions of the word. The Random House 
Dictionary of the English Language says 

"something that secures or makes safe; 
protection; defense. "The administration 
of this college certainly has some strange 
ideas on this subject. To Whit: it installs 
buzzer alarms on all doors except the 
main entrance to the College Center 
Complex, yet it does nothing about the 
extremely vulnerable conditions persist- 
ing in the Lower Level of the Gossard 
Library. It leaves lights blazing all day 
and night around the Center, yet in- 
structs the women's dorm counselors 
to turn all lights off when locking up for 
the night. It is brought to the attention 
of the administration that there is some- 
one breaking into Keister Hall at night 
and weekends, yet does not post guards 
internally, (HORRORS!!!!), let alone ex- 
ternally, nor does it change the lock bolts 
when it is discovered that this "pervert" 
has the keys to the building (plus two 
other dorms). Compounding that, it 
instructs the counselors to lock up at 
5:00 P.M., when all this prowler has to 
do is approach the door and wait until 
someone comes out. 

On this note, let me say it is quite 
amusing to see a student employee of 
the Center with this huge ring of keys, 
one for each different lock in the build- 
ing, and then not follow through in other 
areas where students work. It's a shame 
the administration still hasn't learned the 
real danger of master keys. 

What this is all leading to is to point 
out the dichotomy between the areas of 
student use buildings and administrative 
and collegiate buildings. In the case of 
the "Emergency Alarms" on the doors 
of the College Center Complex, they 
are really a farce. Why shouldn't all 

doors be permitted to be used as ejt, ( 
at all times? They all lock automatical] 
upon closing, therefore keeping securi,' 
intact. The freedom of movement 
the convenience would be appreci 
by many, both students, and faculty 
Besides, how can the receptionist be re 
sponsible to check each student or oth e , 
people who are elsewhere in the building. 
Certain members of the administ ra 
tive staff have a tendency to get very up 
set about students breaking through o Ut 
"security" system. All I can say is, whe te 
there's a will, there's a way. Relax, and 
maybe security will take care of itself!

To the Editor: 

There are many issues in this elec- 
tion year. The one in which we are speci- 
fically asking your assistance is achiev- 
ing peace in Southeast Asia and securing 
the release of our Prisoners of War and an 
accounting of our men who are missing 
in action. 

A Non-Partisan Political Action Com- 
mittee, consisting of families and friends 
of POWs/MI As, has been formed to keep 
this issue before the public, through the 
candidates, during the 1972 election cam- 

This is the third Presidential election 
that POWs-some young enough to be 
your classmates and some old enough to 
be your fathers-have been imprisoned 
in Southeast Asia. 

This year, 1972, is an eventful year 
in our country. It is the first time that 
18-year olds will have the opportunity 
to express their opinions in a national 
election. Your views will have a great 
impact on our entire population. Be- 
cause of this, we are writing for your 
support and assistance. It can be invalu- 
able to us. There are 11.5 million Amer- 
icans between the ages of 18 and 20 who 
have previously been shut out of the na- 
tion's political processes. This year the 
young voter has the opportunity to have 
a major impact on the outcome of the 

Our goal is to elicit a clear statement 
from each candidate as to what he in- 
tends to do— a position on which he is 
willing to be judged at the polls. By elec-

The Winter's Tale: An Uneven Success 

One of the best new groups to arrive 
on the American pop music scene in 
j97l was Yes. This group, a British 
uintet, achieved prominence in the U.S. 
with their third album, entitled The Yes 
U m. This album was hailed by the 

their complexity, all representative of 
the collective musicianship of the group. 
Of these, "South Side of the Sky" is 
the best, with a haunting piano theme 
in the midsection by Wakeman and some 
glorious three-part vocals by Anderson

When Alpha Psi Omega undertook 
the staging of Shakespeare's The Win- 
ter's Tale, its members must certainly 
have realized the magnitude of the task 
they were undertaking. The length of 
this play alone would be enough to dis- 
suade many from producing it, much

10 » » (t .j ' less the manipulation of the vast num- 

albums by a "new" group (forgetting 
y es 'es first two releases dating back to 
1968). I n tne § r0U P developed to a 
high polish their tight, complex sound, 
featuring long, ever-changing songs that 
represented the ultimate in coordinated 
emsemble playing for the entire past 
year. There were relatively few instru- 
mental solos on the long cuts, but rather 
the group functioned as a unit behind 
the unusual vocals and lyrics of their 
leader, John Anderson. Their sound was 
powerful without being overpowering, 
the result of precise, tightly interlocking 
melodies that filled in the gaps in their 
music without resorting to high volume 
or repetitive block chord structures. 
Their musicianship was obvious. Thus it 
is worthy of note that their fourth al- 
bum, entitled Fragile (Atlantic SD 7211) 
is now available. It is without a doubt 
the best album released to date in 1972. 

Fragile is good because, like its pre- 
decessor, it relies on complex melodic 
structures rather than sheer volume for 
the power it projects to the listener. The 
sound is very rich, a result of the 
coordinated efforts of Chris Squire on 
bass guitar and Bill Bruford on drums, 
who lay down a varied but indelibly 
solid rhythm foundation. To this base is 
added the frenzied, ever-changing guitar 
lines of Steve Howe and the subtle but 
insistent keyboard intrusions of Rick 
Wakeman (the newest member of Yes, 
replacing former keyboardist Tony Kaye). 
Added to these are the odd, cosmic 
lyrics of John Anderson, whose high, al- 
most feminine voice soars above the swirl 
of instruments. The result is much like a 

erative lyrics add to the mystique of the 
song. It is, to say the least, breathtaking. 
The other three major numbers are quite 
good as well ("Roundabout", "Long 
Distance Runaround", and "heart of the 
Sunrise"). In addition, each member of 
the group has contributed a solo number 
as well. These are shorter but quite well 
thought out. My favortie of these is 
John Anderson's "We Have Heaven", in 
which the rhythm is augmented by three 
overdubbed vocal parts singing secondary 
lyrics behind the lead vocal. Also note- 
worthy is Chris Squire's "The Fish 
(Schindleria Praematurus)", in which all 
of the instrumental parts except per- 
cussion are played on the bass guitar. 

All in all, Fragile is probably the most 
musically perfect of the newest re- 
leases. This alone would mark it as an 
outstanding album. But beyond this 
single point, Yes demonstrates that -nlike 
other bands that endeavor to include 
neo-classic complexity in their music, 
they have learned the lesson of good 
taste and subtlety. They know what to

bers of characters involved, plotting their 
movements, expressions, and attitudes. 
Nonetheless, Alpha Psi Omega forged a- 
head, and the production of Winter's 
Tale was, as a result, an equally mam- 
moth success, if not entirely realized 

The star of Winter's Tale was its dir- 
ector and designer, Mr. John Field. He 
provided Lebanon Valley with one of the 
most intriguing and original stagings in 
quite some time, simply because of the 
good taste he used in creating the pro- 
duction. The staging was modern and 
free without losing any warmth for the 
sake of displaying artistic erudition. The 
costuming was, in this same vein, sim- 
ple and unrepresentative of any set time 
period (especially the court costumes) 
without being drab and uninteresting. 
The lighting, assigned to Bob Johnston, 
was superb, very innovative and yet re- 
taining the essential "naturality" of the 
stage surroundings. All of the movements 
on stage were logical and well-planned, 
lacking the forced appearance of many 
less skillful productions. Through his sta-

When Mr. Richard Iskowitz came to 
LVC in the fall of 1969, he found his 
art building consisting of two rooms in 
the old infirmary which has now been 
torn down to make room for the new 
cafeteria. The art building was then 

completed sandwich; the more ingredients moved to Saylor Hall and finally to its 

used, the tastier the snack. To this end, 
Yes have used overdubbing to a greater 
extent on this album than on previous 
releases. Steve Howe adds acoustic gui- 
tars to his standard electric guitar parts, 
and Rick Wakeman adds variety by in- 
cluding electric piano, electric harpsi- 

present location in the old bookstore. 
The building is not the only part of the 
art department that has changed. As the 
sole instructor for the non-major depart- 
ment, Mr. Iskowitz has worked to build 
up the slide collection which he initially 
considered inadequate. He put stress on 

chord, Moog, and mellotron in many of modern slides (after 1950) but also filled 
the songs rather than concentrating on 

or gan in the fashion of his predecessor, 
who was replaced specifically for the 
making of Fragile. 

There are four major songs on the 
^"m, all lengthy and maddening in 

in on many centuries where needed. Mr. 
Iskowitz has also sought to make the pre- 
sent art studies courses, Art Introduction 
(12), Art History (21a, 21b), and Art 
Studies (14a, 14b) more challenging. 
Recently, Mr. Iskowitz has been sur-

veying his classes to determine the stu- 
dent interest in establishing an art cur- 
riculum for majors. He has found that 
students as well as faculty are interested 
and enthusiastic about setting up such 
a department. He feels the Arts Festival 
last spring may have been a factor in a- 
rousing student interest in art, and he 
notes that though student interest has 
recently been manifested, certain facul- 
ty members have for some time been a- 
ware of the necessity in a liberal arts col- 
lege of having an art department for ma- 

With the belief that such a depart- 
ment could and should be established, 
Mr. Iskowitz has drawn up a tentative 
course outline for an LVC art major. He 
feels it would be necessary to have an 
art historian on the staff and thus separ- 
ate the art history courses which would 
be taught solely by the historian, from 
the art studio courses to which Mr. Is- 
kowitz could devote his whole attention. 
There would be no specific requirements 
for entering freshmen, although a port- 
folio evaluation would probably be given 
during the students' second year in the 
department. The curriculum would pro- 
vide a fine arts degree, not an art educa- 
tion degree, and would be aimed at pre- 
paring the student for graduate work; Mr. 
Iskowitz has found the majority of un- 
dergraduate art majors do go on to grad- 
uate school. The possible courses of the 
art major's curriculum are: Art Introduc- 
tion (one semester), Art Studio (drawing 
and painting one semester and figure 
drawing and painting second semester), 
Art History (two semester as presently 
in the catalog), Renaissance Art (one sem- 
ester), Medieval Art (one sem.), Modern 
Art (one sem.), three one semester de- 
sign courses, Printmaking (one semester 
and may be taken twice), Introduction 
to Sculpture (clay modelling), and Aes- 
thetics (one semester as presently offer- 
ed by the Philosophy Department.) A 
senior exhibition would be required for 
a degree in art. 

As for equipment, Mr. Iskowitz feels 
that nothing elaborate would be needed. 
Minimum requirements would be a class- 
room with long tables for design work, 
and an AV room for art history courses. 

The LVC art department would appre- 
ciate any comments and recommenda- 
tions, and Mr. Iskowitz encourages any- 
one possibly interested in becoming an 
art major or in establishing a major de- 
partment in art to speak with him. 

ging of the play, Mr. Field presented a 
striking personal interpretation of the 
Shakespeare play , retaining the essence of 
humanity in the production while at the 
same time enhancing the strong under- 
current of fantasy that makes Winter's 
Tale unique among the Bard's plays. 
Unfortunately, this strong staging did 
as much to hamper the play on a whole 
as it did to enhance it. 

I was struck after the play with the 
realization that I was more entertained 
by the stage show than the play. The 
simple, unfortunate, and sadly inescap- 
able fact of the entire matter is that the 
staging and lighting overpowered the cast. 
The acting in general was not strong e- 
nough to contend seriously with the tech- 
nical excellence of the play. Thus the en- 
tire series of events of the play tended 
to become subservient to their stagings. 
I found myself relating the stage action 
to the technical effects and movements 
rather than the effects to the action. Al- 
though the performances on the whole 
were competent, they lacked the force 
to grasp the play away from its surround- 
ings. This seems to be a flaw common 
to a great many dramatic presentations, 
both on stage and film, that haye been 
presented during the last few years. 
Good examples on stage are the original 
productions of Hair and Jesus Christ, Su- 
perstar. Both of these productions were 
directed by Tom O'Horgan, who has be- 
come noted for his lavish stage presenta 
tion techniques. In both cases (which 
have been well-documented in a good 
number of publications, both literarily 
and photographically) the stagings were 
so overpowering that they sapped a good 
deal of effectiveness from the plays them- 
selves and thus reduced the performances 
to the level of a spectacle rather than a 
true artistic presentation. On film, Stan- 
ley Kubrick (2001: A Space Odyssey, A 
Qockwork Orange) is guilty of the same 
act. Roman Polanski's recent film inter- 
pretation of Macbeth promises this same 
technical overkill. And Federico Fellini 
is nothing if not an overpowering creator 
of technically perfect but plotless films. 

Is John Field, then, Lebanon Valley's 
answer to Tom O'Horgan? I think not. 
Unlike O'Horgan, Mr. Field has a sense 
of the tasteful in his directing, never 
lapsing into vulgar, overdone settings. 
Unfortunately, Mr. Field doesn't have 
the calibre of acting talent to choose 
from that the above men do (obviously) 
so much the same problem crops up. Even 
Jim Bowman can't compete with strobe 
lighting and ghostly pointing figures scat- 
tered about the stage. 

Jim Bowman's performance was to 
me somewhat of a disappointment. Per- 

-photo by martin hauserman 

haps I (and a great many others, no 
doubt) was expecting too much from 
him.. Jim has quite a reputation around 
here, and a justified one at that, that 
grew from the strength of his perfor- 
mances as an undergraduate (The Lion 
in Winter, among others). He seemed un- 
comfortable in his part, however, look- 
ing to be a bit too uninteresting as an un- 
agitated Leontes and rather overdone as 
an enraged one. Steve Spiese's perfor- 
mance as Polixenes was better realized, 
being quite believable during his con- 
frontation with his wayward son at the 
sheepshearing. His grasp of the part was 
infinitely more natural; he had a "kingly" 
look about him throughout. I was most 
impressed, however, with Dave Hostet- 
ter's portrayal of the clownish shepard's 
son. Perhaps it is easy to be impressed 
with a comic role, as such roles normally 
offer the greatest tangible entertainment 
in a given play. It is easy to become 
carried away in such a role, however, and 
Dave did a good job of keeping his under 
control. The result was a laughable pre- 
sentation that was enjoyably improbable 
rather than embarrassingly so. It is in- 
teresting to note here that the portrayal 
of Autolycus, an equally improbable role, 
lacked the control that Dave included in 
his protrayal and suffered accordingly. 

Other notable portrayals were presen- 
ted by Mr. Leon Markowicz as the old 
shepherd, Peggy Whorl as Paulina, and 
Bob Moul as Camillo, although the per- 
formances in general were all competent 
and equal to past dramatic efforts at Leb- 
anon Valley. In fact the only role that I 
was totally dissatisfied with was that of 
Florizel, which I felt was miscast. Sadly, 
the portrayals were overshadowed by Mr. 
Field's excellent directing and staging ef- 
forts, which were close to professional 
quality in design and only slightly less 
staggering in execution. The resultant 
quality gap pointed out the decided am- 
ateurism of the portrayals and spoiled the 
overall effect of the play. 

In the end, and reverting to the beg- 
inning of this review, Alpha Psi Omega 
must be credited for pulling this de- 
manding play off at all. As a whole it 
suffered from the aforementioned diffi- 
culties in maintaining an overall quality, 
and the staging did outstrip the perfor- 
ming. It was a laudable effort, however, 
and indicated the high ambitions of this 
organization, if not (as yet) the actual 
achievements, achievements which will 
be realized very soon if equal effort is 
expended on the next Alpha Psi Omega

By itself, a seasonal record of seven 
wins and seven losses hardly seems im- 
pressive. Yet considering the state of this 
year's wrestling team, one would have to 
say that the Dutchmen did quite well 
in attaining a .500 record. The loss of 
many of last year's stars, the inexper- 
ience of the squad, and a tough schedule 
gave warning that the season would not 
be an easy one. And indeed it wasn't, 
for after a surprising double triumph 
over Washington and W & L the team 
faltered, dropping its next four matches. 
In another triangular meet, the team 
was downed by Delaware Valley but 
managed to defeat PMC and went from 
there to post four more vistories before 
ending the season with losses to Sus- 
quehanna and Western Maryland. In the 
MAC tournament, Chet Mosteller and 
Doug Dahms each posted a preliminary 
win to join John Fechisin and Alan Shor- 
ten in the quarter-finals, where all four 
were eliminated. 

Even in a .500 season, however, there 
were many fine individual efforts for 
the Dutchmen. Unofficially, Mosteller 
led in points with 47, winning 11 of 14 
matches with three pins. Alan Shortell, 
who did not even wrestle in a match un- 
til the middle of the season, registered 
four falls (in a span of five matches) to 
lead the team in that department while 
piling up a glittering win-loss record of 
7-1. Co-captain Steve Grove won six of 
nine matches (with two falls) at 126, 
while Guy Lesser was victorious in nine 
of twelve encounters. With a young 
squad, Coach Petrofes must be looking 
forward to next year's season with con- 
fidence at least of a winning season.

It has been a long time since specta- 
tors gathered on our athletic field to 
watch an LVC baseball game. Nine years 
ago, baseball ceased as a league sport 
here at the Valley. 

It wasn't until 1970 that baseball was 
revived on a club basis, sponsored by 
Dean George Marquette. When Coach 
Gerald Petrofes was appointed as Athle- 
tic Director, one of his first projects was 
to re- establish baseball as a varsity sport. 

With the generous support of Stu- 
dent Council, baseball will finally be 
recognized this year. Under head coach 
Lou Sorrentino, the team began prac- 
tice three weeks ago in preparation for 
the April 5 opener with Elizabethtown. 
Following this, LVC is scheduled for 
seven Saturday double-headers with such 
schools as Dickinson, Susquehanna, and 
Drew University. 

Among the 25 players out for the 1 
team are last year's co-captains Larry 
Melsky and Dan Robey, acting in the 
same capacity this year. Second baseman 
Dan Ober, Third baseman Dan Bachman, 
center fielder Scott Sener, and pitchers 
John Bulko and Scott Ruehr are among 
returning veterns who will aid in the 
team's effort.

leave out, which is often more important 
than being able to include a convoluted 
mass of musical statements in each song. 
Yes makes music that is complex with- 
out being complicated and tedious. In 
this respect they have few rivals. 

Good groups can go bad. One such 
case is Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. 
Their first album was good, a tasteful 
mixture of idioms with attention to de- 
tail and musicianship divorced from con- 
sumer pressure. Their second, Tarkus, 
overstepped its bounds in terms of 
attempting both significant statements 
and teen appeal. It succeded in gaining 
the latter, but was musically a self- 
indulgent mess of flaunted interpolation 
of styles and snazz into mediocre rock 
foundations. Their latest album, Pictures 
At An Exhibition (Cotillion ELP66666) 
is the final step into mediocrity for this 
potentially great group. It is, as expected, 
Keith Emerson's space-rock version of 
the variegated Mussorgsky piece, but 
much of it is unrecognizable and the rest 
suffers from inane lyrics by Greg Lake 
and some of the most indiscreet instru- 
mental soloing ever heard on record. The 
saddest part of the story is that most of 
the solo passages used are cops by Emer- 
son from work with the Nice dating back 
two to three years. Thus, EL&P have 
opted for the easy road, noisy, crowd- 
appeasing Klasickal rock guaranteed to 
insure their pop stardom. Even as a 
commercial group they stink. Keith Em- 
erson should be ashamed of himself. His 
self-indulgence has resulted in this group's 
warped priorities and left them the 
artistic inferiors of all but the most 
bubblegummy groups for it. Considering 
Emerson's ability, this is tragic. 

In short ... Islands, by King Crimson 
(Atlantic SD 7212): If you like King 
Crimson you will like this, even though 
it is not as good as their last album 
{Lizard). Musically it is lush, full of 
mellotron gushings and Keith Tippet's 
phenomenal piano work. Striking cover 
art, too. Paul Simon (Columbia KC 30750) 
Simon without Garfunkel is interesting 
but a bit empty and depressing. I still 
haven't digested this one. I think I like 
it musically, but content-wise I'm not so 
sure. It seems to be the soul of pessimism.

VARSITY - 4-6 

by Mike Rhoads 

Lebanon Valley's hopes of taking a 
second consecutive MAC Divisional 
Championship and thereby entering the 
NCAA regional playoffs came to an 
abrupt halt last Saturday in Giester as 
the Pioneers of PMC completely domin- 
ated the final minutes of play to hand 
the Dutchmen a shocking 68-62 defeat. 
It remains to be seen if PMC can com- 
pete on equal terms with such powerful 
teams as Philadelphia Textile (whom 
they played Tuesday), but the Pioneers, 
despite their inconsistency throughout 
the season, have shown rather convinc- 
ingly that they at least have Valley's 

Everything went nearly according to 
play Friday night. PMC overwhelmed 
Johns Hopkings, 103-56, in the first match 
of the evening to reach the semifinals. 
The Dutchmen, perhaps looking forward 
to the upcoming grudge match with the 
only team to defeat them in conference 
play, almost overlooked the fact that 
they had to beat Dickinson to get there. 
The Red Devils were obviously eager to 
upset the defending champions, and they 
startled the Dutchmen by jumping out 
to an early 25-13 lead. At this point, 
however, the Dutchmen began to take 
control, narrowing Dickinson's margin to 
four points (31-27) at the half. 

After intermission Lebanon Valley 
resumed its attack, as the team took the 
lead for good at 39-37 early in the 
second stanza. From that point on it 
was downhill, as the Red Devils, although 
refusing to give up, were unable to gain 
any momentum and watched helplessly 
as the Valley margin steadily increased 
until the final buzzer saw the Dutchmen 
with an 86-74 triumph. Don Johnson 
led the balanced attack with 21 points, 
as Linde, Ammons, Petrie, and Etter 
also hit in double figures. Freshman 
Charlie Brown also contributed heavily 
to the victory, sparking the club to its 
comeback with some fine work both 
offensively and defensively. 

This set the stage for the classic con- 
frontation between Lebanon Valley, de- 
fending champions and first-place finish- 
ers in the league standings, and upstart 
PMC, who had handed the champions 
their only league loss. Both teams fol- 
lowed the script well during the first half 
of play. As expected, the game turned 
into a close, low-scoring affair featuring 
two of the top defensive teams in the 
nation. The lead bounced back and forth 
like a tennis ball during the first twenty 
minutes of play, but unlike the first 
meeting of these two teams (in which 
LVC had to struggle to stay within five 
points at halftime), this time the Dutch- 
men clearly outplayed the Pioneers, 
holding down the high-scoring Wally 
Rice (who managed only 12 points on 
Saturday compared to the 24 he scored 
against Hopkins and the 25 he tallied

lead into the dressing room. 

The early stages of the final half 
were reminiscent of the first, as again 
neither team was able to hold a lead of 
more than a few points for any length of 
time. Finally, the Dutchmen took com- 
mand, opening up a 58-50 lead near the 
midpoint of the period, and it appeared 
that the team had avenged its previous 
defeat when, with less than six minutes 
left, the Valley held a fairlv comfortable 
62-55 margin. At this point, however, 
the script changed, as whatever super- 
natural forces there are that haunt good

Coach Gaeckler's squad. The roof com-

the remainder of the game. Meanwhile, 
the Pioneers alertly capitalized on the 
Dutchmen's errors, delighting their fans 
by scoring the final thirteen points to 
hand Valley a 68-62 defeat. 

So it was a dejected group of LVC 
fans who made the long trek back from 
Chester last weekend. Even Don John- 
son's 13 points, which enabled him to 
break the school's single-season scoring 
record with 620 tallies, failed to raise 
anybody's spirits. The Dutchmen should

On March 15 His Excellency N. P. 
Jain spoke to college students and visit- 
ors on the topic of "India and the Inde- 
pendence of Bangla Desh." He is the 
Minister and Deputy Ambassador to the 
United Nations from the Republic of 
India. Mr. Jain has been a part of 
various U.N. conferences and has served 
in various administrative positions for 

Mr. Jain chose to make factual re- 
marks after which he welcomed ques- 
tions concerning India and Pakistan. He 
began by stressing the fact that the 
emergence of Bangla Desh as a nation has 
not been only because of the events tak- 
ing place in the last few months, but 
has developed in all the years since 
Pakistan's division from India in 1947. 

East and West Pakistan are physically 
divided by a distance of nearly 1000 
miles. In the years since 1947 East Pak- 
istan has found that although they have 

75% of the population, their share ot the 
wealth has not at all been of a compara- 
ble percentage. East Pakistan thought 
that perhaps this situation would change 
for the better; however, in these twenty 

-photo by glenn taylor 

years it became evident that economic 
and political exploitation was happening. 

Mr. Jain went on to cite facts which 
showed West Pakistan's economic dom- 
inance over East Pakistan. For instance, 
although East Pakistan produced 59% of 
the total exports, imports to East Pak- 
istan were only 30%, as compared to 
West Pakistan's 70%. Although there are 
75 million people in East Pakistan and 
only 55 million in West Pakistan, West 
Pakistan received and used 77% of the 
foreign aid. This pattern was repeated in 
industrial development, education, gov- 
ernment service, army opportunities, 
number of doctors, and so on. In every 
case cited West Pakistan took much 
more than its share. 

Thus, the Bangla Desh movement for 
independence resulted from, according to 
Mr. Jain, "a gradual building up or 
reaction against what was actually a kind 
of colonization."

your attention a matter concerning the 
proposed new Music and Fine Arts Build- 

The plans for this building include a 
six hundred seat auditorium with a stage. 
The main function of the auditorium 
will be to provide a recital hall. The 
recommendations for the stage con- 
struction specifically state that the stage 
should not contain any equipment, fix- 
tures, light, etc. for the presentation of 
dramatic productions. 

We feel that these recommendations 
are short-sighted. It is true that the re- 
cently completed College Center houses 
an intimate theater, equipped for dra- 
matic productions. This theater, however, 
seats only a maximum of two hundred 
seventy-seven persons. It is very con- 
ceivable that in the near and distant 
future some dramatic productions will 
be aired on campus which will generate 
the need for a larger auditorium than 
the present Center theater affords. 

Our concern in this matter is not re- 
lated to campus dramatics only, but al- 
so includes the possibility of a produc- 
tion by a touring operatic company, by 
groups, such as the Alpha Omega Players 
(which have presented programs on cam- 
pus over the last several years), and for 
any other presentations which call for a 
theatrical stage and a large auditorium. 
In view of possible budget problems with 
the new building, we are not suggesting 
that the new stage be fully equiped for 
dramatic productions as of the initial 
construction (though it would be de- 
sirable), but that provisions be made for 

concerned attention, as the construction 
plans are now in the process of being 
finalized. Thank you for your kind con-

When asked why an appeal was made 
directly to the Trustees instead of fol- 
lowing the proper channels, a member of 
this group of concerned students answer- 
ed that there were two basic considera- 
tions in their choice of this method. 
First, it was felt that the established 
channels have in the past proven to be 
ineffectual. Second, since the plans are 
in their final stages, there is not much 
time remaining. Therefore, the Trustees 
were seen as the best chance for any 


It was emphasized that the two or- 
ganizations are not primarily asking that 
huge sums be spent in the initial con- 
struction on stage equipment, but that 
the proper structural considerations be 
included in the original plans so that 
equipment could be added at a later 

President Sample has stated that the 
College Center Theater was built to 
meet the needs of campus dramatic pro- 
ductions. Wig & Buckle and Alpha Psi 
Omega find that the theater is inade- 
quate-especially in terms of the future. 

It was pointed out that the 227-seat 
capacity necessitates extended runs which 
cause more royalty payments and con- 
flicts in time budgeting by the cast and 
crew. But the most important deficiency 
of the "Little Theater" is that musicals 
cannot be adequately performed. There 
is no place for the orchestra either in 
front of or behind the stage. 

All students who have any comments 
on or criticisms of the plans for the 
Music Building are urged to express their 
opinions directly to President Sample. 

Faculty Evaluation Proposed 

by Sally Wiest 

Is your lecturer competent? Does he 
show enthusiasm for his subject? Every- 
one has answered these questions over 
and over, sometimes certain of a needed 
change, while other times preceiving a 
better course just through an altered 
teaching method. Yet, by telling the stu- 
dent in the next seat or talking around 
a lunch table never brought any problem 
to the attention of the right people. So, 
the Student Council and the Student 
Senate, as in other colleges and univer- 
sities, have proposed a program for stu- 
dent evaluation of the faculty. The pur- 
pose is "to evaluate individual professors 
through constructive criticism of course 

adequate structural strength, electrical content, instructive methods, and class-

conduits, and sufficient backstage space, 
etc. be allowed for future use as a theater 
as well as a recital hall. The new building 
will serve the needs of the college com- 
munity for several hundred years. There- 
fore, it is imperative that this auditorium 
can accommodate a variety of diverse 
needs in the realm of the Fine Arts as 
well as Music. 

We urge you to give this matter your 

room performance." Through this pro- 
cess there is hope for improved educa- 
tional methods at Lebanon Valley Col- 

"Students should play an integral 
part in teacher evaluation," says Mr. 
Leon Markowicz, a member of the Stu- 
dent Government Review Committee, 
yet he realizes the need for a well ana- 
lyzed and defined program. A discussion 

of good and bad must go further, other- 
wise it is not necessary. It is possible 
that a program could be set up to give 
students an opportunity to help evalu- 
ate teachers who are up for tenure. 

Recently the Student Council and 
Student Senate presented the admini- 
stration the following proposal for facul- 
ty evaluation: 

1. Questionnaires will be handed out 
and collected by dorm counselors. 

2. A closed committee of Student 
Senate and Student Council will com- 
pile the results. It is requested that the 
Academic Affairs Committee appoint 
two faculty members to sit in on this 

3. Copies of results will be sent to 
the President, the Dean of the College, 
and respective department chairmen. 

4. The completed questionnaires will 
be given to the Dean of the College. 

5. In order that students may realize 
the results, designated answers will be 

It is hoped that sincere answers by 
the students and positive reactions to the 
questionnaire by the faculty will result 
in improved educational methods.

At The Last Minute 

Following bureaucratic channels is one of the first realities im- 
pressed upon a student entering Lebanon Valley College. The desire for 
correct procedure has been carried to the length of insisting that sug- 
gested revision of a committee must go through that committee as in 
the case of the College Center Advisory Committee. 

It is also well known that even the most worthwhile petitions can be 
rejected because of incorrect procedure. Last month, however, the mem- 
bers of Wig & Buckle and Alpha Psi Omega, concerned with the proposed 
plans for the new Music Building— formerly the Fine Arts Building, 
communicated by letter directly with the Trustees. 

The method of planning this building directly illustrates the usual 
pattern on campus. Everyone vaguely knew the building was being 
planned, but there were no announcements on what stage that planning 
was in or what facilities were being considered. On campus only the 
faculty of the Music Department was consulted. Now when the campus 
at last becomes aware of the specifics of the blueprint, the administra- 
tions responds that it is too late to make any changes. 

Of equal importance with the changes these dramatic organizations 
are trying to effect is why they chose this rather radical method. (After 
all, it was only three years ago that the first students asked permission 
to attend a Board of Trustees meeting and attempt to relate a student 
viewpoint without interpretation by the administration.) It seems obvious 
that the students involved felt that the channels available to them 
through Student Government are ineffectual. The present Student 
Government Review Committee might well consider why these established 
channels were abandoned and why the predominant student attitude 
is one of powerlessness and lack of faith in their ability to influence 
decisions on campus. 

In this particular case finding the correct channel may have proven 
rather difficult. Logically it would be assumed that any suggestions 
would proceed through the Building Committee, however, that Com- 
mittee has already been informed that they will have no part in 
any of the planning for the Music Building. Barring this slight problem, 
the Building Committee's past record has not been one to inspire con- 
fidence. In this they are the rule rather than the exception when it 
comes to the record of student organizations and their influence.

The position of Editor of La Vie is and will be open to the entire 
campus. Anyone who is interested must submit their name and qualifi- 
cations to either the present editor or a member of the Publications 
Committee. An organizational meeting for next year will be held some- 
time after Easter vacation. 







by Dr. John P. Kearney 

I would like to avail myself of the 
kind invitation the editors extended in 
the Feb. 24 issue to comment on some 
of the ideas presented in the special 
issue on Changes at LVC. As a new 
and very shy member of the faculty, I 
needed such an invitation before ven- 
turing forth. Besides happily observing 
that the most radical suggestion for 
change, except perhaps for Mr. Neid- 
eigh's, came from our president, I would 
like first to draw some comparisons 
between Dr. Ford's and Dr. Mayer's 
suggestions and, second, to suggest a 
distinction that might be helpful in the 
present reconsideration of the general 
and distribution requirements. 

It is hard to conceive a sharper 
contrast than that presented by Dr. Ford 
and Dr. Mayer. The one's thinking is 
personal, humorous, satisfied, the other's 
abstract, coolly professional, critical. 
Where Dr. Ford speaks of liking Pres- 
ident Sample, of teachers worrying over 
students at parties, of saying how-do 
to students on the campus, of his own 
feelings of embarrassment and pride in 
talking with his peers, Dr. Mayer speaks 
of student virtues, of improving the 
academic program and departmental cur- 
ricula, of enlarging the student body, 
of reviving the summer sessions. The 
one uses the language of poetry ("my," 
"ruined," "leaky roofs," "mumble." 
"Boast"), the other the language of 
mathematics ("enlarging," "percentage," 
"increase the number of applicants," 
"critical mass"). Dr. Ford's reasoning 
process is gentle, wayward, humane, 
organic; Dr. Mayer's logic is sharp, syl- 
logistic, computerized, atomized. 

As an apostate from the mathe- 
matical sciences and a convert to the 
imaginative method, I must say why I 
think Dr. Ford's is the sounder advice. 
On the basic issue of size, to grow or 
not to grow, which sets the clearest con- 
trast between the two men, I think Dr. 
Ford does well to remind us of the grow- 
ing pains, perhaps even disintegration 
pains, being suffered on large campuses 
throughout the country. Our educational 
system on all levels needs decentraliza- 
tion rather than the reverse, as do all our 
public institutions from prisons to or- 

Along this line I think we would do 
well to reconsider our housing policy. 
Why not take a tip from student enthu- 
siasm for the small house dorms and re- 
turn the houses on College Ave. (the very 
word "college" used to mean a group of 
people living together) to student hous- 
ing. It would be interesting to see how 
the faculty would respond to the idea of 
their offices being efficiently consolidated 
on one of the floors of the new dorm. 
If it be objected that this is an un- 
economical use of space, let us look at 
the financial woes of institutions that 
mushroomed with new dorms in the 
fifties only to find in the sixties students 
preferred more organic forms of living. 
Seattle University, where I previously 
taught, is now saddled with impressive 
debt-ridden skyscrapers 55% empty. Cen- 
tre Hall could be resold if need be, but 
who will want to buy Hammond Hall? 

What precisely can be the cause and 
effect relationship between the concepts 
"critical mass" and the improvement of 
"the stature and quality of LVC"? Dr. 
Mayer hopes that with an increase in 
mass and a consequent increase in spec- 
ialization, we will obtain an increase in 
quality of both faculty and student. 
Surely this is fatuous. In recent years the 
best students have been crying for less 
specialization, more integration. The stu- 
dent who knows at age 14 that he wants 
to be an accountant or physical therapist 
or Old English scholar and narrowly 
marshalls all his energies to that end 
seems to me to be the reverse of that ac- 
tive and academically involved student 
Dr. Mayer wants. If there is any "critical 
mass" ratio that is meaningful at a col- 
lege, surely it is the teacher-student ratio. 
Here, in the very terms of each meeting 

between faculty and student, is the place 
where mathematics and condition qual- 
ty. But here the argument has come full 
circle, for the quality of those classroom 
meetings depends on the quality of the 
people, students and faculty, attracted 
here. Dr. Ford is satisfied with the peo- 
ple he sees here, Dr. Mayer not. As- 
suming for argument that we should try 
to raise that quality -an extremely pre- 
sumptious and identity challenging as- 
sumption-how best to do it? Dr. Mayer 
suggests a basketball team. Or football. 

At this point I would call in an 
electrician to check the wiring. That 
check might start with a comparison of 
the NACC or NA1A leaders over the past 
decade with a list of the most intellectual- 
ly prestigious schools. West Texas State, 
South Carolina, or, more locally, PMC 
and Philadelphia Textile- are those the 
models we should follow? Since the days 
of Elgin Baylor Seattle University has 
had a national basketball reputation of 
sorts, which the recruiting office never 
failed to mention. The result there has 
followed with perfect logic. The school 
has continued to field pretty good bas- 
ketball teams, and the stands have been 
filled with more and more "students" 
who feel the heart of a college education 
is watching someone else play basketball. 
If we have faith in ourselves and value 
what we are doing, we needn't stoop

I would like to offer some comment, 
and additional suggestions pertaining t 
the subject of needed change at Lebanon 
Valley. What I say will, by no mean s 
cover all my thoughts on the matter, buj 
will, I hope, add to what has already 
been offered for consideration. 

First, of all, I felt that President Sam 
pie's ideas on possible academic reform, 
were worthy of consideration. 1 would 
like to expand on these. It seems to me 
that one of the first steps towards help, 
ing a student fulfill certain goals and 
expectations should take place in the ad- 
missions process. Perhaps a student could 
apply for college by submitting a propose 
for a self-designed program of study 
which would reflect his interests in com- 
bination with President Sample's three 
areas of goals and expectations. This 
proposed "contract" for "studentship" 
would then be subject to critical re- 
view by faculty in a sort of negotiation 
process for admission. Obviously, a stu- 
dent could only go to a school where 
the (terms of the final contract are more 
or less satisfactory to him as well as to 
the school officials. Once in school, the 
student would be able to revise or alter 
the contract through partial or com- 
plete renegotiation. As far as the nature 
of proposed program is concerned, its 
design would include proposals of meth-

- A Case of Instigation - 

by Jim Katzaman 

The case of the Harrisburg seven now 
being tried in the state capitol, again 
brings to the forefront a very delicate 
and legally questionable practice of fed- 
eral and local law enforcement agencies 
and their informers. The question is this: 
how legal, and for that matter ethical, is 
the act of using informers to incite il- 
legal acts by individuals so as to secure 
their apprehension by the governing 
authorities? Are those involved to be 
held entirely responsible for their ac- 
tions? Should the informer who incited 
them to their actions be let off scott free 
not to face up to possible wrong doings 
of his own? 

The main focus of the prosecution's 
case against Father Philip Berrigan and 
his associates centers on the testimony 
of FBI informer Boyd F. Douglas Jr. 
It was he who told of the alleged con- 
spiracy to kidnap presidential advisor 
Henry Kissenger, hold him for a short 
time, then release him as a sign of pro- 
test against a government and one of its 
officials who had committed war crimes. 
Rev. Berrigan and the rest have subse- 
quently been charged with conspiracy and 
their ongoing trial has attracted national 
attention on the front page of every 

This now famous case brings to light 
the controversy of the new role of to- 
day's informer. There is certainly a dif- 
ference between procedures followed 
now and those accepted in the classical 
definition of the informer. Webster says: 
Informer ~n 1 . one that imparts know- 
ledge or news 2. one that informs 
against another; specif.: one who 
makes a practice esp. for a financial 
reward of informing against others 
for violations of penal laws-called 
also common informer. 
Notice, nowhere does it say any- 
thing about an informer's role as insti- 
gators of incidents. But ever since the 
days of Tommy the Traveler a year or 
so ago that new element of the infor- 
mer's role has come to light. Tommy 
incited incidents; he was the leader of 
reactionary groups, in fact, he was the 
organizer of the ones he was a member 
of. He taught kids how to make bombs. 
Yet when those he incriminated were ar- 
rested, Tommy himself came out of the 
whole thing with no unsightly marks in 
the eyes of the law. 

We don't have the time or the space 
to go into all of the details of the Berri- 

gan case, but these are the main, general- 
ly accepted facts. Boyd Douglas was 
planted among the Berrigan group well 
before any of the alleged offenses in 
the trial took place. Boyd was the go-be- 
tween between Philip Berrigan who was 
serving his term in a Lewisburg jail for 
his part in draft board raids and the rest 
of the alleged conspirators. It appears 
that, if indeed Philip and his group did 
discuss a plan for the kidnapping of 
Kissinger and the destruction of the 
Washington heating system, he was not 


without instigation from Douglas. When 
the government and Douglas had felt 
that enough evidence had been gathered, 
indictments for conspiracy were asked 
for and received from a grand jury i" 

Conspiracy is a charge that is legally 
difficult to prove and as of right noWi* 
undergoing constitutional questioning 
its validity. Theoretically, if two or m ofe 
people get together and discuss an un 
lawful act with an intent to carry it ° ut ' 
that is conspiracy. The difficulty ^ 
in trying to prove that serious int e 
was involved in their actions. It is main 1 ' 
a value judgement -wherein lies its c0lt 
stitutional questionableness. 

The government may be able to p r ° v * 
its case; it may not be. But if it can

the case, Philip could conceivably u se

Perhaps turnabout is fair play.

Sophs Plan Film All-Nighter Counseling Provided 

by Jim Katzaman 

Q n Friday, April 14, at 8:00 p.m., 
Sophomore Gass will sponsor an ali- 
ght film festival in the Lynch Gym. 
more details of this fast-breaking 
we contacted a high official of the 
S | committee for his comments. The 
f (lowing is what he said in response to 
ur penetrating questions in an in-depth 

q. why is the Sophomore Class spon- 
soring this all-night festival? 

fr- Well, we feel that there is a gen- 
eral lack of things to do on weekends at 
j^e Valley- We base this assumption on 
the fact that just last Saturday night 
three groupies were found passing time 
watching the paint peel off the railroad 

Q: Exactly what films will you be 

showing during the all-nighter? 

A: We think that we have something 
for everybody. First, for the western 
fans we have "The Professionals." This 
film features Lee Marvin, Burt Lancaster, 
and Claudia Cardinale. As you can see 
by some of the cast members this fea- 
ture may have more than enough for 

Next there's an 80 minute flick for 
the sports fans, the "Harlem Globetrot- 
ters." This also helps in boosting our 
comedy stock. 

Next, we have an Academy Award 
winner. It's a little known film which we 
hope will be a big hit, "The Endless Sum- 
mer." Newsweek called it "one of the 
year's ten best films." 

Then we have a twenty minute Span- 
ky and Our Gang film entitled, "The Kid 
from Borneo." If you are any fan of the 
Our Gang series you may recall the"Yum, 
yum, eat 'em up!" hero of this story. 

Q: I'm sorry, but I don't remember. 

A: Well, that's your tough luck! 

Q: Please try to control yourself. 

A: I'm sorry. Now as I was saying, 
our next attraction to tickle the celluloid, 
and we think that this will give us a 
fairly sizable draw, will be "I Love You, 
Alice B. Toklas." This stars Peter Sellers 
in his better days and Leigh Taylor- 
Young if she ever had better days. 

Finally, and NOT to be shown in that 
order, we will have the Alfred Hitch- 
cock thriller, "Psycho." For obvious rea- 

sons it is planned that we will show this 
flick as close as possible to midnight. 

Q: That's all well and good but what 
kind of accomodations have you made in 
the gym. For instance, will the sopho- 
mores be in charge of setting up the 

A: Bite your tongue! There will be 
no chairs to set up. We have asked the 
authorities and have received permission 
for those that want to bring their own 
sleeping bags. If anyone has the tremen- 
dous urge to use them, one set of bleach- 
ers may be pulled out. We're trying to 
have as many comforts as possible ex- 
cept NO SMOKING This is one rule that 
must be strictly enforced. But I think 
that this is a minor concession to make 
for a night of entertainment. 

Q: Speaking of concessions, will any 
food or refreshment be sold? 

A: Yes, we're tentatively planning 
to have refreshments in the lobby of the 
gym. But the details have to be worked 
out yet. We might even take orders for 
pizzas and pick them up at Hot Dog 
Frank's around midnight as they did 
last year. 

Q: How much will this extravaganza 

A: Last year the price was two dol- 
lars a head and I see no real reason why 
it shouldn't be the same price this year. 
Please keep in mind that for two dollars 
you will be provided entertainment from 
8:00 Friday night until around 5:30 
Saturday morning. And, as an after- 
thought, I should mention that six car- 
toons are also included in the package. 
To be quite honest with you we will need 
at least 200 people at $2 per head to 
break even on the deal. So, please feel 
free to come and bring a friend or two. 
The more, the merrier. 

Q: When will the tickets go on sale? 

A: We think well be ready for that 
phase in a week or two, as soon as we 
get all the details ironed out. I want to 
emphasize that this is not a spur of the 
moment thing. The planning for this 
event has been well under way since 
Christmas. Only small details remain to 
be worked out. 

Q: Where do we go for information 
concerning the festival which you haven't 
already answered? 

A: Well, Jim Katzaman should be able 
to provide you with most of the infor- 
mation you want. 

Q: Wait a minute. Haven't I heard 
that name before? 

A: I don't know. I just got here

There is no such thing as a perfectly 
adjusted person, according to Dr. George 
Jeffereson, psychologist for LVC's coun 
seling service. 

Nonetheless students find themselves 
enmeshed in problems with which they 
cannot cope, and Dr. Jefferson, a recent 
addition to the LVC scene, finds his pro- 
gram increasingly useful for "just about 
anything that's bugging anyone." 

Dr. Jefferson describes his program, 
now in its second month of service, as 
designed to ". . . help students remove 
the emotional pain and impedements 
that prevent them from achieving their 

The current counseling program was 
developed by Dr. John Walmer, psychia- 
trost at nearby Philhaven Hospital, and an 
alumnus of LVC. Dr. Jefferson is a mem- 
ber of Dr. Walmer 's team at Philhaven. 

For those who have reservations a- 
bout seeking help through counseling 
service, Dr. Jefferson assures that "all 
information obtained in sessions with 
students is kept strictly confidential. 
Counseling notes are kept in confiden- 
tial files at the hospital and are in no way 
shared with the college administration, 
and are not included in school records." 
The school receives only the name of the 
student, by whom he was referred, and 
the dates on which the student was 


Dr. Jefferson, who keeps Thursday 
morning office hours on campus, will 
talk with a student as many as four 
times, at no cost to the student, as part 
of the program. The way in which this 
time is spent is dependent upon the stu- 
dent's needs and problems. "These four 
sessions may help us to come up with 
solutions to the student's problem," 
states Dr. Jefferson. "Four sessions may 
merely clarify the nature of a problem 
which may require longer term counsel- 
ing. If this is the case, the counseling 
service here will help the student find 
further assistence." Additional services 
are available at Philhaven Hospital Out- 
patient Clinic and the Hershey Medical 
Center. Family and Child Services in 
Lebanon will provide services at minimal 
cost if the student is referred by Dr. 

Dr. Jefferson brings a personal in- 
terest in campus life and activities to 
LVC. He has taught seven years on the 
college level and most recently was Coun- 
selor for the International Student Pro- 
gram at the University of Georgia. In 
addition to his work at LVC and Phil- 
haven, he teaches General Psychology 
one day each week at Messiah College. 

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts 
degree in Psychology at Lewis and Clark 
College, Portland, Oregon, Dr. Jefferson 
earned a Master of Arts in Human De- 


ability to get the type of medical coun- 
seling and services desired is causing as 
much consternation on college campuses 
as it is for the general population. 

A major difference is that the stu- 
dents are pushing for health care re- 
form-through recognized campus asso- 
ciations—with college administrators. In 
some instances, considerable gains have 
been made. In contrast, the average 
American lacks the organizational frame- 
work to accomplish similar objectives. 

This is one of the findings of a written 
questionnaire directed to 100 college 
student leaders in different parts of the 

The survey was conducted for PARK- 
MED, a New York City out-patient a- 
bortion faciltiy, to determine whether it 
is apathy or ignorance of adequate birth 
control measures that is responsible for 
the sizable percentage of abortions and 
the concommitant rising incidence of 
venereal disease among college age young- 

sters. This group may possibly account 
for one-third of all abortions performed 
in New York City. 

The results of the survey, conducted 
in December 1971, reveal that 57% of 
the respondents were displeased with 
existing university health clinic services. 
The lack of contraceptive counseling was 
cited repeatedly as a condition to be 

This was also found to be a criti- 
cism among the 43% who reported that 
the student body was basically pleased 
with its university's health clinic ser- 

About this, Mrs. Ardis Danon, R.N., 
PARKMED's Assistant Administrator, 
states, "Although this was not a formal 
study, the need for more accurate 
contraceptive information was so fre- 
quently stressed that we may conclude, 
at least on a preliminary basis, that 
ignorance and not indifference, or even 
promiscuity, is the prime cause for the 
high rate of abortion among college 

Even when gains are made, the stu- 
dents continue to press for programs 
that are more responsive to their needs. 
For example, William R. Ray, Student 
Body President, University of Denver, 
wrote, "Some of the recommendations 
such as V.D. checks and for a gyn- 
ecologist have been made time and time 
again. These have now been established 
recently in very modified form. 

"We shall, however, continue to push 
for staff changes, expanded facilities, 
birth control information and dispen- 

Even among the 43% who rate their 
universtiy health services as "okay," 
recommendations continue to be made. 
For instance, Ms. Mary Scitres, Pres- 
ident of Student Body, Indiana Univer- 
sity, wrote that students are pressing 
for a gynecologist and for more atten- 
tion to be focused on married families 
and their problems. 

Abortion and abortion referral were 
cited infrequently. Obstetrician-gyn- 
ecologist Bernard Luck, M. D., PARK 
MED's Medical Director, views this as 
a healthy sign, pointing out, "Despite' 
the excellent medical safety statistics 
for the out-patient abortion procedure 
(under 12 weeks), abortion should not 
be looked upon as a substitute for 
contraception. It is. at best, a measure 
to be considered when unplanned preg- 
nancies do take place because contra- 
ceptive methods have been ineffective."

free election for Prime Minister in which 
East Pakistan elected a man who should 
have been Prime Minister of United 
Pakistan. West Pakistan found excuses to 
prevent Mujib from becoming Prime 
Minister. On March 25 the reign of 
terror began in which the West Pakistani 
army slaughtered thousands of Bengalis. 
Thus began the liberation struggle of 
75 million people, the eighth largest 
population in the world. 

Mr. Jain defended India's involve- 
ment in the war. Briefly, India did not 
feel indifference was possible with such 
destruction and atrocities going on right 
on their border. Over ten million refu- 
gees poured into India, burdening an 
already overburdened nation. Mr. Jairi 
believes that there are times when terri- 
torial rights must be judged by what 
human rights are being violated. Also, it 
does make a difference when one country 
is responsible for driving millions of 
people into another sovereign country. 

Mr. Jain wanted to dispel the idea 
that "India started the war." If India 
had wanted to start a war, she wouldn't 
have waited until December to get into 
the war. Indian troups were welcomed by 
the Bengalis. India, Mr. Jain empha 
sized, has no territorial designs on Pak- 

At the conclusion of his remarks, 
Mr. Jain stressed the need for countries 
to settle their differences peacefully at 
the conference table. "We have only one 
war to fight," he said, "a war against 
poverty -hunger -disease ..." 

During the question answering ses- 
sion that followed, Mr. Jain was asked 
(among other questions) why the 
200,000 Bengali women acosted by West 
Pakistani soldiers and soon to bear il- 
legitimate children have been rejected by 
their fellow Bengalis. Mr. Jain said that 
the normal reaction, of course, would 
be to say that it is no fault of the 
women. But one must first understand 
these people, who tend to be supersti- 
tious and conservative. In this part of 
the world a kiss in public is dis- 
graceful -as is holding hands. Thus, it is 
hard for a Bengali to face a woman who 
has been through such a degrading ex- 
perience. These women feel their lives are 
only shame and misery. President Mujib 
has spoken to the Bengalis, saying that 
it is not the fault of the women and urg- 
ing the Bengalis to accept them, along 
with the innocent children soon to be 
born. "It is one of these questions,' 
Mr. Jain remarked, that defy under-

od or means of experience, and propos- 
als evaluation of progress, as well as pro 
posals for subject matter. 

As far as student comments are con- 
cerned, I feel that much of the criticism 
of faculty and teaching techniques is 
justified. Perhaps though, in keeping with 
the spirit of the previous paragraph, 
which seems to point to letting persons 
formulate, reach and present their level 
of academic maturity in a way which is 
more or less individual, the faculty should 
be allowed the prerogative to choose 
their "styles". As students "in between 
the times", however, we should consider 
ways to enable the faculty to evaluate 
why some of their insight is not filter- 
ing through to us. May I suggest ... 

1) Tape recording (video-tape would 
be even better!) entire class and discus- 
sion sessions as well as formal lectures 
from various points of the classroom. 
The result would be enlightening for 
both student and professor, as both 
would hear (see) more objectively 
their contribution the cynamics of the 
learning experience. 

2) It might be helpful to have an in- 
formal mediator present as students and 
professors together analyzed the record- 
ed situation in a mutual attempt to im- 
prove on it. 

3) "Lab" sessions or learning work- 
shops for professors and students which 
would further help them improve toge- 
ther on the learning experience in the 
classroom (academic "sensitivity train- 

Of course, education is not merely 
an academic matter; it cannot and should 
not be considered as separate from life 
as a whole -learning is a life-long process- 
nor should it be limited to intellectual 
development. Thus, I would like to sug- 
gest some things for improving social con- 
ditions of the student at LVC. 

1) First, all existing opportunities 
should be preserved but as options in a 
greatly expanded list. 

a. Sororities and fraternities should 
not be abolished as suggested by Ray 
Pierce. These are valuable means of 
interaction for some people— not me- 
and do provide a closer "family" to 
relate to within the institutional com- 

b. Expanding the student body to 
2000 students could be done, so as to 
provide more diversity in the back- 
ground and personality of the stu- 
dent population. This would expand 
the possibilities for informal friend- 
ship circles as opposed to the more 
formalized sororities and fraternities. 

c. Further development of the pos- 

sibilities inherent in the existence of 
a student center would increase the 
"growth" and sharing potential be- 
yond that currently available on cam- 

Free Non-Credit Workshops for Everyone 

(including members of the greater com- 

Tutoring-maybe even for little kids 
Activities-contests, crafts, etc. 
Community Service Projects: besides tu- 
toring-Story hours, Day-care, Youth 

Officially Announced B. S. Sessions(on 
topics of relevant interest 
Parties, Dances, Contests 

As implied by the lists above, I feel 
that students whould be associating more 
with persons sf all ages and levels of ma- 
turity, something which is discouraged 
or made difficult by present academic 
and social (living) conditions. 

2) I feel that an effort should be 
made to merge "college" and community 
activities and projects as much as pos- 

3) The present housing situation 
should be reformed so that students are 
integrated as much as possible into the 
community especially if they desire it. 

a. Students should be allowed and 
encouraged to live with families off- 
campus, to become family "mem- 
bers". Perhaps assuming a specified 
share of household responsibilities 
could be an exchange for room and 

b. Present dormitory facilities 
could function as apartments... open 
to members of the faculty, members 
of the community, married couples, 
etc. etc. 

4) At least, it would be valuable to 
have a "counselor" dorm family in every 
dorm. Of course, it would require great- 
er effort to keep the noise down at 
"wee" hours of the morning, a respon- 
sibility that many studei.ts apparently 
unable to accept along with "adult" in- 

In summary, I feel that a social ar- 
rangement more representative of the 
main human community would help stu- 
dents become more responsible in their 
behavior, to achieve more easily adult 
identity, and in general, to form a better 
understanding of the human situation. 
It is this type of understanding that 
makes intellectual pursuits relevant and, 
therefore, a vital part of any educational 
reform which seeks to improve upon the 
means of guiding young people toward

by Ben Neideigh 

Diamond writes good songs. 
Surprised? It's true, though. Neil Dia- 
mond is one of the best songwriters 
currently working in the rock genre. 
How do I know, you ask? I don't, 
necessarily. But Rolling Stone does. 
And Rolling Stone finds Neil Diamond 
a very good singles artist. To quote 
Alec Dubro, "I hope he keeps writing 
singles. They're among the best there 
are." And they are. But why buy the 
singles when you can get his albums? 
After all, his albums are just collections 
of singles. And all of the songs feature 
the same soulful, deep-throated vocals 
that he features on his big hits, the 
slick Hollywood accompaniment (heavy 
on the horns and strings, and hire 
Larry Knechtel for the piano parts) 
and the strong latin inflections included. 
Face it. A lot of you really liked 
songs like "Holly Holy," "Cherry 
Cherry," "Brother Love's Traveling 
Salvation Show," and "Crackling Rosie.' 
Why deprive yourselves because of stu- 
pid "hipper than thou" attitudes. As is 
often the case, records that are made 
for Top-40 radio are better produced and 
better recorded than the "artistic" under- 
ground rock records. Notice the smooth, 
seamless sound that groups like Three 
Dog Night, the Fifth Dimension, the 
Bee Gees, and the Jackson Five present. 
The songs themselves may (like Dia- 
mond's) be rather lacking in the experi- 
mental histrionics, the extended "im- 
provisations," and the strong culture 
statements of the more popular under- 
ground groups, but often as not offer as 
much good, carefully crafted rock mu- 
sic in their three minute lengths than a 
great deal of non-singles-oriented groups 
do in entire albums. They do tend to get 
a bit sugery after a while, but for a 
change of pace they can't be beaten. 

So it is with Neil Diamond. His songs 
offend and startle few, and thus are 
worth their weight in gold to Universal 
City Record Co., and definitely aren't 
the kind of music most rock fanciers 
would listen to with any consistency. But 
as a relaxing, quality change of pace 
they are quite good. Diamond is a lot 
like the Carpenters in this respect. He 
has an appeal that is universal. Teeny- 
boppers teethe on his soft yet rocking 
sound. Older age groups find his mellow, 
simple songs quite a refreshing break. 
Even middle-aged people find redeeming 
qualities in his music, which is youthful

From Ben Neideigh 

Well, kids, Easter is full and ripe upon 
us once again and just as the moon isn't 
made of green cheese, we won't have 
classes after tomorrow for a little over a 
week. Wheeeee!! What's the Easter bunny 
gonna bring ya? Eggs? Chocolate Rabbits? 
Marshmallow chicks? Real chicks? A 
chick? Or in the case of a fatal femme, 
a guy, huh? What's it gonna be? Well 
let me tell you something. If you know 
how many beans makes two then you'll 
ask mommy or daddy or whatever inter- 
mediary stands betwixt you and the 
Easter Rab and requisition that delight of 
delights, Crunchy Granola. 

Crunchy Granola is a whole bunch 
of things, seeds and berries and nuts and 
honey all cooked together that tastes a 
bit like a cross between Lucky Charms 
and suet. It's good for ya, though. Mums 
would like it, except it is the favorite 
plate of the hippie-types nowadays and 
it might have additional added ingre- 
diants in it that do funny things to your 
thinking. Might make yer hair grow long. 
Down to your heinie even. Then you 
would look positively grungy and the cops 
would probably glance askance when 
you pass by and mumble things about 
White Rain and the good of days with 
Model A's and radeeo bo-do-de-o-do 
(Courtesy Roger Miller on Smash Re- 
cords). Then they would probably check 
your cards to make trouble and give you 
a warning, "Lettin' yuh awf eezee theeis 
tahm,buddih!" So much for health food. 
Stick to beer. 

I haven't had a decent Easter Basket 
since I was a kid. About five or six years 
ago. It didn't matter much though 'cause 
I could never eat the heads off of choco- 
late bunnies. Perhaps if I ask a bunny 
stoned on reds this year 111 get a bas- 
ket of Granola. That would surprise me, 
though. Granola isn't as easy to handle 
as hard boiled eggs and it is difficult to 
paint groovy religious symbols on it with 
Daffy Duck Dye or the brand of your 
choice so long as it's American. Easter 
Seals have never had pictures of Granola 
on them, either. Face faks, kids, Crunchy 
G. isn't exactly the national dish yet, es- 
pecially at Easter Time. I doubt that a 
hen could be developed that could lay it. 

So when they roll away the stone 
from the tomb, what's gonna come 
rolling your way? What if agrDovy chick/ 
groovy guy did show up in yer basket, 
all nice and ready for some serious neck- 
ing? What would you do? Would you be 
shy with her/him? Or would you be a 
tiger?!?!? Sneaking up from behind you 
wrap your arms around her/his waist. . . 
breathing low you tug at her sash /his 
belt. The garment falls away freely, 
smoothly, as do the bikini briefs/Fruit 
of the Looms until you're both stand- 

ing there stark raving undressed!!! The n 
you lower her/him slowly to the fi 00r 
with great anticipation and with one 
quick motion, grab the hard boiled e 
Yes, friends the newest kinky fetis 
nude egg dying. It's really swell!!! y\ n 
remember, Daffy Duck Dye makes out- 
asite body paint as well, and in f u r 
shades!!! Tattoo your lover's back so it 
looks like the Ram album cover!!! Write 
Happy Easter across her/his stomach!!! 
And just think of the many uses for the 
handy applicators!!! 

Don't forget to clean up after yoi 
done. No one likes a sloppy egg 
fetishist and his unwary assistant. After 
all, enough is enough. And also don't for- 
get that it's illegal. The unlawful uses fo r 




dye are well known. If the 


catch you you 11 really have egg (dye) 
on your face. And a lot of other places 
for that matter. Perhaps it would 
safer to get a new car in your basket. 

Spalanzani East Motors of Teanecl 
N.J. has just the little rabbit for you! 
The Spalanzani B-18, the most advanced 
vehicle on the road today. It's more 
than a car, it's a way of life (at 
$42,000.00 minus dealer prep, state and 
local taxes and an import charge it had 
better be!) that you will love living. 
Imagine the thrill of attaining 140 miles 
per hour on route 934!!! Imagine the 
snob appeal of having the largest gaso- 
line payment due on your block! Imag- 
ine the excitement of an average of 
seven apprehensions for noise violations 
in municipal Lebanon alone each week!! 
Imagine being the first on your street to 
own a car with eighteen cylinders, 
camshafts, seven forward speeds plus o 
drive, 4:11 rear, positraction, and up 
twenty-six carburetors in patterns that 
match the mesh of the tweed upholstery 
of the interior!!! Imagine an owner's 
manual with the names and addresses of 
eight prominent plastic surgeons and 
bone-graft specialists on the first page!!! 
Imagine the repossession ceremony!!! 
And now for a short time only, the 
special Spalanzani Easter Special decor 
package is available featuring a yellow and 
purple two tone paint job with realistic 
simulated mahogany crosses embossed on 
the door panels and matching simulated 
spike scars on all four tires!!! All this 
and much, much more at Spalanzani 
East Motors, in Teaneck, N. J. . ■ • 

In the long and short of it, it's nice 
that we can have an entire week to our- 
selves for eating candy and hard boiled 
eggs and going to the church of our 
choice and doing all of those groovy 
American Easter things that everybody 
in any American Easter does. After all. 
it's automatic!!! Have a happy Crunchy 
Granola and eat a lot of Easter!!! And 
remember, don't accept any wooden

gimmicks but simply publicize those 
things we do best. 

The current revaluation of our gener- 
al and distribution requirements is an ef- 
fort to sec what that "best" might be. 
^ a t usually happens in this sort of re- 
valuation is that every faculty member 
loudly favors removing specific course 
r equirements-with one or two excep- 
tions, which, remarkably, always seem 
to fall within that particular teacher's 
bailiwick. The result is either a gradually 
growing list of required courses, each 
with its fiercely committed partisans; or 
if internal feuding wears down these 
partisans, then a frantic leap into the 
void of relativism with the responsibility 
f devising a liberal education defaulted 
to the student. 

In order to find a satisfying middle 
ground between these extremes, could 
we not distinguish between skills and 
content courses? It seems to me there is 
a body of intellectual tools any student 
in any field needs, and that these could 
all be imparted within the first Freshman 
semester. I think we could define a very 
sharply limited kit of intellectual tools, 
skill in which could be required of every 
student -on a rather rigorous pass/fail 
basis. Then subject matter that each of us 
individually thinks is important for a 
liberal education would be offered in 
groups of distribution requirements 
that would permit the student a wide 
range of choice. 

I think there are three types of ab- 
solutely necessary skills: information 
gathering, thinking, expressing. The first 
would include divine revelation, use of the 
library and computer systems, question- 
naire and survey methods, and the gath- 
ering of scientific data. The second would 
stress logic, the various forms and rules 
of reasoning-geometric, mathematical, 
liguistic, artistic; it would try to teach 
the student how a poem, a mathematical 
formula, a scientific induction, a paint- 
ing "menas" and introduce the rules that 
govern each inquiry . The third class of 
skills, the expressive, would deal with 
written, spoken, and artistic expression; 
sit should deal with the art of conversatior 
in the classroom and the musician's ex- 
pression of emotion as well as the more 
traditional features of English composi- 
tion. Every one would be a skill course, 
and the student would pass when-and 
only when -he could do it. 

Obviously each such "course" would 
have to be team taught. In fact such a 
program, to be honest and successful, 
would call for a far more serious com- 
mitment by the entire college to the im- 
portance of that first semester of the 
heshman year than we now give it. We 
couldn't possibly hope to impart such 
battery of skills successfully unless we 
We re thinking in terms of, say, one 
English teacher being responsible for the 
writing skills of three batches of perhaps 
ten students each, one month per batch. 
The large lecture might be useful oc- 
casionally, but the staple of such a pro- 
gram would have to be close, even inti- 
ma te contact between a teacher and a 
fe w students for a short, intensive time 
P e nod. To sweeten such an austere diet 
We might let each freshman also take a 
course in his chosen major. Once having 
J Un each neophyte thru such a gauntlet, 
think we would feel easier about letting 
■m choose his own priorities from there 
° n - We might also feel more confident a- 

ut letting freshmen or sophomores try 

eir hands at advanced, specialized 
:2 u rses without prerequisites. 

by Rick Mitz 

The list of Relevant Issues, as they 
are called, seems overwhelming: prison 
reform, women's liberation, crime, drugs, 
muclear weapons, pollution, the Vietnam 
War, feeding the poor, the population 
bomb, the job market, 1972 elections, 
minority rights, the student vote, edu- 
cational reform, consumer information, 
the legal system, voter registration, 
foreign relations. . . 

That's a lot of problems for only 
8.4 million U.S. college students to solve. 
And since education almost always has 

meant fighting for causes as well as 

or instead of — grades, it's no wonder 
that in-depth disillusionment has draped 
itself over unsuspecting college students. 

The above problems all are maladies 
that students themselves didn't even 
create. The philosophy in recent years 
has been that the world has been bent, 
folded, mutilated, and stapled. For about 
the last ten years, strdents thought it 
was their responsibility to un-fold, un- 
mutilate, and re-staple the parts back 
together again. 

Now it's the dawning of a new era. 
Evolution of revolution. Sit-ins, teach- 
ins, riots, confrontations, bombings, ral- 
lies,moratoriums, and strikes now are 
mere memories of the Sixties. 

After seven years of disoriented stu- 
dent disruptions, the Seventies breezed 
in. And with them, the War continued 
and we demonstrated. 

. . . and we continued to demon- 
strate vehemently for and against what 
we did and didn't believe in. And the 
nation listened. Not to the message of 
the student protests, but only to the 
message of the medium — the scream- 
ing headline, the loud newscast, the 
acrimonious editorial about the student 

And then along came Now. A feel- 
ing of futility has set in, bred out of 
frustration and confusion. 

Last academic year was a prophetic 
indication of this: campuses were calm- 
er An- occasional rally. An occasional 
march. But quieter. 

Why the change? 

The problems still are there, but our 
tactics have changed, if not vanished, 
according to Drew Olim, a National 
Student Association senior staff mem- 
ber. Olim said he sees definite symptoms 
of "withdrawl, defeatism, lack of direct- 
ion and dropping out." He said he sees 
two possible reasons for all this. 

"Money is getting tighter. Prices are 
going up and parents are complaining. 
Students now are understanding the 
plight of the working-classman, and 
so they are dropping out and trying to 

find jobs." he said. 

The Attica incident, and the con- 
tinuing War are a few of the ongoing 
frustrations that, Olim said, "have pro- 
duced feelings of major disillusionment 
among students." Olim said he sees 
these as feelings brought on by a 
national student feeling of innefectuality. 

Students have retreated within them- 
selves in a quiet-dissent, self-explora- 
tory way. And the result is a new 
individuality, a new problem -orienta- 
tion thet might yet solve the problems 
that violent protest couldn't. 

Individualism skips rampant through 
the student life-style. Give Peace A 
Chance chants have evolved into a new 
soft music, a new gentle sound of 
manifesting itself in quiet love stories 
in song. Small shops and co-ops have 
opened, selling hand-made, back-to- 
earth clothing and organic goods, a 
reaction against depersonalized mass- 
produced culture. 

Do-it-yourself attitudes accompany 
the do-your-own-thing philosophy. 
We grow our own organic food, make 
our own clothes, build our own furni- 
ture, plan our own curricula, ride our 
own bikes instead of driving a car. . . 
and the list is as long as the list of 

But our newly -discovered Student 
Age of Individualism isn't beneficial if 
it isn't channeled in positive directions. 
Hopefully, it isn't self-indulgent, iso- 
lated individualism. Hopefully, in de- 
viloping ourselves as individuals, we'll 
create the impetus to get back together 
and then get it all together. 

There seems to be a change of 
consciousness, but hopefully, not a 
lack of it. Students are looking for new 
kinds of solutions. Hopefully, they are 
no less concerned about the problems. 

But if — through the vote and work- 
ing within the system rather than with- 
out it — students can't be effective in 
changing our environment, another stage 
of disillusionment — one punctuated with 
apathy, discouragement and 1950's nos- 
talgia — may set in. 

The list of Relevant Issues is growing 
longer and longer. 

Rick Mitz writes a national column 
that is free to college newspapers. Any 
reactions would be appreciated, -ed.

SMC-More than 1250 students from 
all over the country crowded into Wash- 
ington Irving High School in New York 
to attend the February National Student 
Antiwar Conference. After two days of 
intensive discussion the conference voted 
to build massive demonstrations against 
the war on April 22 in New York and Los 

It was felt more urgent than ever to 
answer the lies of the government that 
the war is "winding down." Conference 
participants pointed to the continuing 
escalation of the air-war as an indication 
of the Nixon administration's real policy 
in Vietnam. The conference opened with 
a teach-in that vividly described the pre- 
sent stage of the war. Among the speakers 
were Dr. Arthur Galston who described 
the ecological destruction of Indochinia 
and Ngo Vinh Long, a Vietnamese stu- 
dent who spoke of the mounting op- 
position of the students of South Viet- 
nam to the Thieu regime. 

In presenting the resolution to build 
the April 22 demonstrations, Fred Lov- 
gren, the National Coordinator of the 
Student Mobilization Committee, stress- 
ed that the deceptive propaganda of the 
government could best be countered by 
rallying in the most massive visible form 
around the key demand of an immediate 
unconditional withdrawl of all troops 
and material from Southeast Asia. 

The wide spectrum of student or- 

ganizations that attended the conference 
indicated that there is the potential for a 
powerful organizing drive for April 22. 
The conference participants came from 
30 states and Canada. There were stu- 
dents present from 124 high schools and 
154 colleges. 130 organizations besides 
local chapters of the SMC were present. 
These included Students for Lindsay, 
Youth for McCarthy, Young Socialists 
for Jenness and Pulley, Youth for McGo- 
vern, the National Student Lobby, the 
Association of Student Governments, 
Youth for Muskie, and the National Stu- 
dent Association. 

Other resolutions adopted by the 
conference included a demand for total 
amnesty for draft resisters, deserters, and 
those servicemen who have been vic- 
timized for their opposition to the war. 
The antiwar GIs were seen as the heroes 
of the war who deserved our over- 
whelming support. 

The conference adopted a proposal 
to join with other campus groups in 
sponsoring a nationwide student poll. 
(La Vie will run this poll in April.) This 
is designed to gauge students' perferences 
between the presidential candidates and 
to allow students to express their opin- 
ions about the key issues in the election 
such as the war. A huge vote by students 
for "Out of S.E. Asia Now!" will be a 
powerful boost to stimulate opposition 
to the war throughout the population.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, March 23, I972 


(Cont. from Page 4, Col. 3) 
but. in the tradition of Tin Pan Alley 
rather than Liverpool or Frisco. Diamond 
is an entertainer. He is merely a worthy 
successor in the tradition of Crosby, 
Sinatra, Como, Presley, and Jones. No- 
thing more, nothing less. 

If you're interested, here are three al- 
bums that I recommend for gaining a pre- 
liminary acquaintence with Neil Dia- 
mond: Gold (Uni 73084): this album 
gives you all of Diamond's greatest hits, 
only performed live. The only backup 
that he uses on this album is guitar, 
bass, drums, and vocal backings from 
these players, but the sound if full de- 
spite the treatments that differ greatly 
from his studio work. His voice soars 
triumphantly through this album's cuts, 
the most spectacular of which is "Ken- 
tucky Women," perhaps his best-known 
song. In addition, the performance turned 
in by the guitarist (a female) is specta- 
cular. She uses an electric 12-string and 
manages to sound like three guitars at 
once due to some incredible finger pick- 
ing. Tap Root Manuscript (Uni 73092): 
This is a very good album by any stand- 
ard. It indicates a new direction by Dia- 
mond. The first side features "Cracklin' 
Rosie" and "Done Too Soon" in a col- 
lection of short songs that includes a ver- 
sion of "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Broth- 
er" that makes the Hollies' original 
sound anemic. The second side is called 
the "African Trilogy" and features the 
hit "Soolaimon" (itself strongly influ- 
enced by African music) set into a con- 
ceptually unified group of songs based 
on Kenyan folk styles. It features a 
children's choir and brilliant percussion, 
as well as an a capella "Missa" that is 
simply breathtaking. Sounds pretentious, 
doesn't it? It works, though, as an over- 
all piece that represents not black music, 
but white interpretations of African id- 
ioms. I really like it. Stones (Uni 93106): 
His newest album and another departure. 
Except for three of the songs (I Am I 
Said," "Stones," and "Crunchy Granola 
Suite"), the contents of the album con- 
sists of songs written by other people. 
This is a departure for Diamond in that 
he has, until this time, restricted him- 
self firmly to his own material, throwing 
in only a few singularily effective out- 
side songs ("Clouds," for example, on 
Gold). The treatments are very good. 
Especially good is his upbeat reading of 
Joni Mitchell's "Chelsea Morning," which 
features some very tasty electric piano 
work, and Roger Miller's "Husbands and 
Wives," a song I detested until hearing 
Diamond's cover. All in all, Stones isn't 
representative of Neil's work, but it is 
very good, perhaps his best) musically 
and worthy of inclusion in any collec- 
tion. But then, so are the other two. 
In Short . . . 

Nilsson's newie (Nilsson Schmilsson: 
RCA LSP 4515) is advertised as a rock 
album by the promo people, but it isn't 
in the truest sense. True, the album fea- 
tures Harry N. on swell vocals and piano 
backed by a mixed bag of session men 
heisted from George Harrison (Jim Price, 
Klaus Voorman, Gary Wright, Jim Gor- 
don) and Elton John (Caleb Quayle, 
Paul Buckmaster), and true some of the 
songs ("Down," "Jump into the Fire") 

really kick ass with their rockin' power, 
but on the aggregate the album is more 
of Nilsson's undefinable brand of pop/ 
rock /soul /broad way nostaligia with a good 
dash of humor (as in "Coco nut") thrown 
in. His best songs are still his soothing 
ballads (such as "111 Never Leave You") 
and his cutsy-pie children's verses ("The 
Moonbeam Song"). On this album he 
capitalizes on his ability to impress 
rather than overpower and the result is 
more professional and bouncy than raw 
and rocking. Nilsson simply spends too 
much time writing pretty pop songs to 
become a true bopper. And it's just as 
well that he does, because as a writer of 
pretty pop songs he is unequaled. This 
album features his current AM smash, 
"Without You" (a cover of a late 1970 
Badfinger song) which includes great 
piano by Gary Wright and is a showcase 
for Harry's three-octave vocal range. If 
you like this single, youH love the al- 
bum, for the album is every bit as tasty, 
and tasteful, as the single and reflects 
the genius of this fine musician. 

Harvest, by Neil Young (Reprise MS 
2032), is to me a disappointment. It 
promised much (being some seven months 
in the making) but in the end delivers 
one great song ("Heart of Gold," his 
current single), two good ones ("Ala- 
bama" and "Words"), one infectuous 
mediocre song ("Harvest"), two unin- 
fectuous mediocre songs ("Out on a 
Weekend," "Old Man"), two bad or- 
chestrated cuts ("A Man Needs a Maid" 
and "There's a World") and one awful 
leftover from his appearance with John- 
ny Cash ("The Needle and the Damage 
Done"). Neil had a good thing going with 
his first solo album, featuring the beauti- 
ful "Old Laughing Lady" and the eerie 
"Last Trip to Tulsa," and the album that 
he did with Crazy Horse wasn't bad. Af- 
ter the Gold Rush signaled a real change, 
however, to his present lazy countrified 
stance and even though it offered some 
fine moments, was spotty. This album is 
spots rubbed indelibly into the cloth. 
It's Neil Young at his most grating and 
boring. He needs to be produced lavish- 
ly (as on his first effort) to succeed 
musically, and he instead turns to lazi- 
ness in the name of simplicity. Too bad. 

The newest hit on the comedy scene 
in recorded form is the album Cheech 
and Chong (Ode SP 77010). The two 
members of this outfit, Cheech the 
Chicano and Chong the Chinese, pro- 
duce what they call hard rock comedy. 
It isn't really that much different from 
regular stand-up dialogue except that it's 
based on that taboo of taboos, dope. 
The overriding attitude of the album is 
stoned, literally and figuratively. It works, 
'cause the album is a bonafide gas 
("Dave's not here!!" might become the 
catch-phrase of the decade) reflecting 
the silliness of a good high, but whether 
or not this will work again and again 
remains to be seen. 

Next issue, the new Firesign Theatre 
album and who knows what.

Then God said let there be intramur-

multiply. And lo, did the teams emerge 
and multiply into A's and B's. And God 
saw that this was good. And the morn-

And it came to pass that a rivalry de- 
veloped between Philo and Kalo as they 
jockied for position. But God saw the 
sportsmanship it produced and it was 
good. And the morning and the even-

Then a decree went out from the 
chieftains of Kalo that all citizens of its 
realm were to go to their own gym and 
bring back the Supremacy Trophy to 
their own kingdom. And this was done. 
Not once, nor twice, but thrice. And the 
mornings and the evenings were fourth,

On the seventh day KALO rested. 
And the faculty won. And the old men 
saw that it was good.

Lacrosse Starts Practice 

by Mike Rhoads 

One of the more popular-and cer- 
tainly the most unusual -sports conduc- 
ted on the intercollegiate level at LVC 
is lacrosse. It has also been one of the 
most successful, as last year's 8-4 record 
indicates, and Coach Roger Gaeckler ex- 
pects this year's squad to carry on this 
winning tradition. 

Defensively, this team may suffer 
from inexperience in the early stages of 
the season. Howie Knudson, one of the 
top goalkeepers in the league, is back, 
but the only other returnees are Tony 
Calabrese and Ed Johnson. However, 
things should improve later as players 
like Jim Kiernan, Bob Ward, Scott Hazel, 
Jack Pumphrey, Tom Sheaffer, and Frank 
Lichtner (whose names are already fam- 
iliar ones to many LVC sports fans) get 
more experience. 

In any case, the team should be able 
to score goals with some regularity. Lead- 
ing the attack will be Co-Captain Jeff 
Rowe, assisted by Denny Camuse, Gary 
Hunter, and Jim Bowditch, just to men- 
tion a few. The squad should also be 
strong at midfield with standouts such 

as Greg Arnold, Ken Gilberg (co-captain), 
Dave Steffy, Dale Oehler, Don Singer, 
and Bill Snyder. 

Overall, the team is definitely less ex- 
perienced this year, but interest in the 
sport is increasing, as shown by the fact 
that 39 men, many of whom had never 
played before, turned out for the squad. 
Gaeckler, in his first year as head coach, 
plans to stress fundamentals-"condition- 
ing, defense, hustle, and hitting." If 
these are not quite enough against strong 
opponents such as F&M, Lehigh, West- 
ern Maryland, and Swarthmore, alert 
fans may even see a few ideas which 
Gaeckler has borrowed from the basket- 
ball court. Certainly, if the lacrosse team 
comes even close to matching the fine 
record of this past season's cagers, no- 
body will complain. 

The Dutchmen will begin the season 
with an away match with Dickinson on 
April 6, and then return home to face 
Haverford and PMC on April 8 and 12. 
Don't miss these opportunities to get ac- 
quainted with one of the fastest and 
most exciting games around. The team 
needs your support.

Social & Cultural 

ANNVILLE, PA. -On April 30 at 3:00 p.m., the Music Department will 
present the Fortieth Annual Spring Music Festival in the College Chapel 
(admission is by student ID card). The concert will open with Suite Num- 
ber 1 for Clarinet Choir, by Nelhybel, performed by the LVC Clarinet 
Choir under the direction of Mr. Frank Stachow. The piece de resistance of 
the concert will be Requiem Mass for chorus, soloists, and orchestra by 
Thomas Lanese. Mr. Lanese is associate professor of strings, conducting 
and theory at LVC and also directs the orchestra and chorus. Guest soloist 
for the Requiem will be Virginia Englebright, Soprano; Mertine Johns, Al- 
to; Wayne Connor, Tenor; and Philip Morgan, Bass. 

The Requiem was composed in memory of Germaine Monteux, and was 
written during the period 1970-71. The sketches were completed during a 
sabbatical leave in 1970 and the score was completed at the end of 1971. 

The traditional Latin text is employed. The movements are in six large 
segments, with divisions made in the more lengthly parts. The heart of the 
Requiem and the movement in greatest contrast to the traditional Mass is 
the Dies Irae. In this work the Dies Irae is written in seven sections be- 
ginning with the 'Day of Wrath,' and concluding with the traditional 
'Lacrymosa' (Tearfull shall be the day). This will be a premiere per- 
formance. -Richard Smith 

LEBANON, Pa. -The Lebanon County Chapter March of Dimes First 
Annual Walk-a-thon will be held on Sunday, April 30. The 15 mile walk 
will begin and end at the Lebanon Plaza. Anyone may participate by 
either walking or sponsoring someone to walk. The "Walk" is a 1 5 mile 
course with checkpoints. Each person walking all or part of the course 
gets others to sponsor them at a monetary rate per mile. Walkers will pass 
through checkpoints along the route and have their route cards stamped. 
When the "Walk" is over, the walker shows his route card to his sponsors 
and they will apply the amount earned by the walker to the March of Dimes 

All proceeds of the "Walk" will, of course, go to the March of Dimes

Head Publishes 

by Bobbi Sheriff 

Dr. Joerg Mayer, Chairman of the 
Department of Mathematics, published 
his first book, Algebraic Topology, just 
a few months ago. It isn't often that a 
book demonstrating such intellectual 
ability is produced with so little recog- 
nition of its merit. 

According to Samuel Eilenberg, topo- 
logy, known also as the mathematics of 
distortion, is "a field so abstruse that 
even among mathematicians few under- 
stand it." Algebraic Topology is a very 
deep generalization of that part of geo- 
metry which deals with the ways in which 
surfaces can be bent, pulled, stretched 
and otherwise deformed to be transform- 
ed into another shape. An algebraic 
topologist is commonly referred to as 
"one who cannot distinguish between 
a doughnut and a coffee cup." (These 
two objects may be produced from each 
other by changing their surfaces with- 
out altering their basic properties.) 

According to Dr. Mayer, topology is 
one of the fastest, continually growing 
fields in mathematics. Because of its pro- 
found nature, it is only taught at grad- 
uate levels. 

There are some ten modern textbooks 
in English dealing solely with algebraic 
topology in existence today. Dr. Mayer 
believes that only three of these are 
actually designed to motivate the stu- 
dent. The others "start hard and get 
harder" at a level the typical graduate 
student has no yet attained. Dr. Mayer 
feels that his book is one of the three 
exceptions. It is specifically designed to 
activate the enthusiasm of those students 
desiring knowledge about the field, but 
preferring not to have to do research in 

Dr. Mayer also feels that courses in 
algebraic topology should be a require- 
ment for math students at the graduate 
level. Unfortunately, however, there are 
not enough mathematicians willing to 
teach this difficult field. His book is 
written with the hope that graduate pro- 
fessors who are not specialized in this 
particular subject area will use it and 
teach the course successfully. He feels 
all students should have the opportunity 
to learn this most "fascinating and beau- 
tiful subject" and thus he calls his book 
a "labor of love." 

Before coming to LVC, Dr. Mayer 
taught courses in Algebraic Topology at 
the University of New Mexico. He also 
spent a semester at the University of 
Marburg in Germany teaching this sub-

Denise Levertov appeared at LVC on 
Tuesday, March 21, for an afternoon 
poetry discussion and evening reading. 
During the 4:00 session in the fellow- 
ship room of the chapel, the poet dis- 
cussed various topics concerning her re- 
cent book, To Stay Alive, and her ideas 
on the role of the poet and of the rela- 
tionship between teachers and students. 
During her evening poetry reading some 
of these ideas were again discussed, and 
she read from her "Mexican poems," 
her "Olga poems," and from To Stay 

An idea which seemed to be of par- 
ticular interest to Miss Levertov was that 
of the continuity of themes which she 
found in her own work and in others' 
art works. Opening her poetry reading, 
she said that when asked to read a poem 
aloud, she was usually surprised to find 
"some kind of tie-in" with the other 
poems she has chosen to read. She dis- 
cussed her "Olga poems," which she said 
was really one poem and which first ap- 
peared in her book, Sorrow Dance. She 
included it again in To Stay Alive, she 
said, because she found there were cer- 
tain themes in this poem which also ap- 
peared in the "Staying Alive poem," the 
long notebook poem which comprises 
most of the second half of To Stay A- 
live. These themes involved revolution, 
death, and the manipulation of lives to 
establish order. In the afternoon discus- 
sion she also talked about this continu- 
ity of theme. She said that some critics 
feel poets should not sign their works, 
that all poetry should be anonymous so 
as not to be connected with one person, 
the author, but with all people. Miss Lev- 
ertov diaagreed with this, saying that she 
felt it important to know who the auth- 
or is so that the reader can see his 
themes develop throughout his works and 
can see the interplay of his ideas in his 
poems. Miss Levertov believes poetry 
should, therefore, be a growing dynamic 
form closely connected to the poet's 

When asked why she wrote To Stay 
Alive, Miss Levertov said, "Because I 
needed to deal with my own experiences." 
She continued to discuss her ideas con- 
cerning the role of the poet. In her opin- 
ion, the poet's first responsibility is to 
himself, or as she said, "to be honest 
with himself which means to maintain 
his "fidelity to the imagination." After 
submerging himself in his own works, 
she continued, the artist then comes to a 
stage where he must step back and view 

his creation with criticism. In this stage 
the artist assumes the position of society, 
as the viewer of his work. Becuase the po- 
et does not exist isolated, therefore, he 
has a social responsibility which Miss Lev- 
ertov said stems from the fact that he 
is articulate and therefore should exer- 
cise this power, not as a propagandist 
but to make others more conscious, more 
aware, and more "alive." If he can do 
this, she said, the poet will be serving a 
social function whether the poem is a 
"political" or not. She added that the 
poet also has an active responsibility to 
"match deeds with words" and to "fol- 
low through with whatever waves your 
pebbles have made." If a poet's works 
have inspired someone to action, to "go 
out on a limb," then she insisted that 
the poet must "be there too." 

Miss Levertov was asked if she felt 
she had ever exploited political events 
and relationships with people simply as 
subject matter for her poetry. She ans- 
wered that, on the contrary, she felt 
that she has not written about a great 
deal of her life experiences that she could 
have written about. She further said that . 
though every poem could probably be 
considered in some way "political" yet 
she has often been surprised to find her 
readers interpreting some of her poems 
politically. She also argued that though 
political ideas are important, "poetry 
is not made of ideas but of words," that 
"poetry isn't concerned with this or that 
subject matter" but "can be anything at 

The afternoon session ended with a 
discussion primarily between Miss Lever- 
tov and the faculty members present con- 
cerning education methods. Miss Lever- 
tov herself was educated at home and so 
had no formal public education. She has 
taught poetry courses at The Poetry Cen- 
ter, New York; Drew University; the City 
College of New York; and at Vassar, and 
so had some definite ideas concerning 
the relationship of students and teachers. 
She said she did not believe in assigning 
specific themes, that if a student must 
write themes, he should be given wide 
latitude in choosing his topic. The dan- 
ger, she said, in the traditional method 
of assigning specific topics, is that a 
bright student often develops a facility 
for writing just what the teacher expects 
instead of finding knowledge that inter- 
ests or is of particular value to himself. 
In education Miss Levertov said she would 
like to see students interacting more in 
all phases of life so that a "trust and 
respect" for each other would develop.

The antiwar movement has traveled through many stages since its 
formation. It started with a small, aware group as soon as the U.S. sent 
its first "advisors" to Vietnam. They felt that despite who was winning 
of losing, we had no right to become involved in what was a civil war. 
At that time the majority of the American people passively supported 
the war-without questioning some of the platitudes on which our in- 
volvement was justified, such as the support of democracy in Saigon. 

The movement for peace continued to grow and demonstrations 
massed to attack LBJ's war policy, especially the bombing of the North. 
Then an amazing thing happened. LBJ withdrew, took his files, and fled 
to Texas to write his memoirs. 

Nixon campaigned on the promise that he had a plan to end the 
war. Perhaps he was trying a strategy similar to Eisenhower and the 
Korean issue. The only problem was, that once in office, he forgot to 
end the war. Nixon's plan has been called "one of the best kept secrets 
in Washington." When President Nixon made no serious progress in 
ending the war, the protest movement turned to mass demonstrations 
as its tactic to draw national attention to the immorality and also the 
financial reality of the war. The zenith of strength was reached in the 
Spring of 1970 with the Kent State killings and the invasion of Cam- 

Then came summer break and a lull in activity. Since then the move- 
ment has been unable to rekindle the spirit that brought thousands to- 
gether in Washington and disrupted hundreds of colleges and universities. 
Many people felt that the time for mass demonstrations was over. The 
majority of the people now opposed the war. The issue of peace was 
effectively taken over by the establishment as Nixon began to with- 
draw troops. 

Now the Student Mobilization Committee feels that it is again the 
time for mass demonstrations, (see letter to the editor, this page) This 
may well be true. First, the war has, if possible, become even more 
immoral by the use of air power rather than man power. And since the 
American casualty figure continues to drop so that only 8 or 9 or even 
3 or 4 die each week, the public has returned to passively accepting 
the decisions of the Nixon Administration. Second, this is an election 
year and mass demonstrations of any type are more effective. Plus this 
time many more of the demonstrators will also be able to vote. 

It is hoped that the real issue of peace in Vietnam will not become 
confused in the jumble of partisan political tactics of the Democrats or 
the rather overdone rhetoric of the movement organizers. 

We have destroyed and are destroying both the land and the people 
of Vietnam with an unbelievable array of weapons. The real issue re- 
mains that the United States should not legally or morally have inter- 
vened in the civil war in Vietnam. 

Letters To The Editor 

To the Editor: 

The student movement has been a 
major force responsible for creating ma- 
jority antiwar sentiment in this coun- 
try. In 1965 when they told us this was 
the "first consensus war in American 
history," it was students who organized 
teach-ins to question that consensus. In 
1966 and 1967 it was students who 
helped shatter that consensus. It was 
students who organized the first mass 
marches which have involved other sec- 
tions of society in active opposition to 
the war. Today, 65% of the American 
people believe that the war is immoral- 
in large measure because of the work of 
the student antiwar movement. 

The only thing that stands between 
majority antiwar sentiment and majority 
antiwar action is a lie -the lie that the 
war is winding down. The facts are that 
the bombing is heavier than ever before 
and Nixon plans to leave a residual force 
of American GI's in Vietnam indefinite- 
ly. In the first three months of 1972, 
Nixon has sent more bombing raids a- 
gainst North Vietnam than in all of 

The student movement must take the 
lead in exposing Nixon's lies. Nixon, the 
man responsible for the invasion of Cam- 
bodia and Laos, would' like nothing bet- 
ter in this election year than to point to 
the campuses of America and say, "I 
have silenced antiwar dissent. America is 
united behind my 'plans for peace'." 

Nixon has incredible resources at 
his disposal -free TV time, crack public 
relations teams, and millions of dollars. 
All we have are the meetings we can or- 
ganize, the leaflets we can pass out, and 
the mass demonstrations we can build. 
But then, Nixon has to maintain the 
most ambitious network of lies the world 
has ever seen. All we have to do is to tell 
the truth about Vietnam. 

There are massive, peaceful demon- 
strations for the immediate, total, un- 
conditional withdrawl of all U.S. forces 
from Southeast Asia and an end to the 
bombing NOW! scheduled for Saturday, 
April 22 in New York and Los Angeles. 
The decisive majority now oppose the 
war. By united massive actions by the 
antiwar majority we will end the war.

Although Bobby Fischer doesn't yet 
seem too worried, the Lebanon Valley 
Chess Team is again in the process of 
compiling another highly respectable sea- 
son. The team slumped briefly in mid- 
season, dropping two matches to Dickin- 
son, but they bounced back strong on 
April 8 with a double victory over 
Shippensburg, winning the first match 
3-2, and the second by a 3Vz-VA margin. 
These two triumphs, along with an earlier 
5-0 whitewash of Gettysburg, give the 
team a record of three wins and two 
losses with one match remaining in the 
season. Team members Bob Shipe, Bill 
Schreiber, Mike Dortch, Bill Howard, 
Mike Rhoads, and Mark Orlando are now 
"in training" for the upcoming league 
playoff, a three-round affair in which 
the team will have the opportunity to de- 
fend last year's divisional title while a- 
venging this season's defeats. Several 
members of the squad may also partici- 
pate in various USCF-rated tournaments 
which are coming up in the near future.

Dr. Kearney's comments on the 
"Changes at LVC" issue of La Vie are 
welcome, indeed since they show that 
the discussion about the future of the 
College continues-as it must. They are 
especially welcome for me as they al- 
low me, through this reply, to amplify 
some of my original statements and thus 
to remove misunderstandings. 

Most contributions to the "Changes" 
issue were predicated in past at least 
by the uneasy feeling that the future of 
LVC as of all private colleges is in grave 
danger. And if the discussion of our fu- 
ture is to be of any value then it must 
be cool and rational. Just as a patient de- 
mands from his physician cool, pro- 
fessional diagnosis and therapy rather 
than declarations of love and loyalty, 
our College deserves our cold and ra- 
tional attention. All the same, we can 
still be gentle, wayward and humane. 

Reading the Carnegie Report or other 
reports by faculty committees and indi- 
vidual professors at other universities 
one is struck by the detached and 
sharply logical way in which these au- 
thors-surety no less dedicated to their 
institution than we are to ours-dissect 
the problems of higher education in 
general or in particular; and most of the 
authors are in the humanities or the 
social sciences. 

Assuming that we can learn from 
others we would do well to have a 
critical look at the present state of af- 
fairs at LVC. According to a student of 
American higher education, most U.S. 
colleges that have failed during our his- 
tory "have been tiny, underfinanced 
sectarian institutions which depended 
upon a loyal and nonmobile faculty and 
a student body recruited locally or by 
a supporting church" (L. Geiger, AAUP 
Bulletin V. 57, no. 4, p. 501). 

With respect to LVC we see that: 

1. The educational operating budget 
is met to 92% by student tuition and 

2. The annual support (presently a- 
bout 6% of the educational operating 
budget) originally given by the EUB is 
being phased out by the United Metho- 
dist Church. 

3. LVC's endowment is less than one 
total annual operating budget. 

4. Over 30% of the associate and full 
professors are LVC graduates and a like 
proportion comes from similar colleges 
in the region. More than 60% have spent 
their entire teaching career at LVC. 

5. A large percentage of our students 
come from Pa., N.J., or N.Y. and/or 
are church recruited. 

There is little doubt in my mind that, 
at least in comparison with all influen- 
tial universities LVC is indeed tiny. It is 
obviously in dire financial circumstances. 
Its faculty is loyal and nonmobile. Most 
students are locally recruited or by the 
If we assume that Geiger's 

statement carries some predictive weight- 
and we should not be complacent enough 
to think that for some reason we shall 
survive without special efforts -then, just 
to save the College from perdition we 
must begin some merciless and unemo- 
tional thinking. 

Under ordinary circumstances it 
would be unduly alarmist to juxtopose 
Geiger's evaluation and the state of LV 
But, circumstances are not ordinary. 

According to some late studies 
Wolfe and Kidd, AAUP Bulletin v. 
no. 1, pp. 5-16) the enrollment at US 
colleges and universities will increase 
until 1982 then decline until 1988 to 
possibly increase again. In other words, 
starting no later than 8 years from now 
we are in trouble. Never in the last 25 
years have enrollments dropped, never 
have there been as many two year and 
community colleges, never has the com- 
petition by state schools been as hon- 
estly qualitative as now. This means that 
we will face totally new problems which 
call for drastically new solutions. 

Not new are the suggestions of out 
students to be more liberal, to ease off 
on regulations or to allow more individual 
effort. Equally it is not new to revamp 
the approach to learning and teaching, 
to tinker with requirements or to ex- 
periement with evaluation methods. Such 
changes are normal in the development 
of a college in normal times facing a nor- 
mal future. What we need is an adnormal 
change -without losing our identity; if 

And yet, only the mention of a so- 
lution by doubling our enrollment seems 
to rankle some people as shown by Dr. 
Kearney's comments. 

Let us acknowledge that our stu- 
dents are not 14 year old kids t> ut 
adults who are here for a liberal educa- 
tion and many of whom are ready and 
willing to specialize since they will n ee< * 
a job when they graudate. The job rnaf-

slow in coming that to assure that mos' 
of our graduates will find a position

any voter may vote on all ballot questions and for any "Special Election" which

The occurrence at LVC last spring the 
weekend of May 14, was a veritable 
miracle. At this stage in planning for the 
Spring Arts Festival 1972, the festival 
committee anticipates another miracle. 
The amazing event is barely four weeks 
away and again the schedule of events has 
hardly begun to coagulate. 

Perhaps the seeming haphazardness of 
deadline coordination is what gives LVC's 
Arts Festival its "vibrant freshness." Cer- 
tainly, memories of last year's May week- 
end reflect nothing less than existential 
ecstasy. "That's what I remember most," 
reminisces a sophomore chem major, 
"Everybody came together and got high 
on each other. To use a dated word -it 
was a real happening." Hopefully, this 
year's happening will be just as fresh and 
intoxicating as that of '71. 

If a theme were to be selected for the 
festival, it would probably be something 
like "The Experience Experiment." The 
essence of '72's festival is involvement. 
Although there will be many entertain- 
ing possibilities such as a production by 
La Salle dramatic performers, a photo- 
graphy exhibit from George Eastman 
House Library by Dennis Stock, film 
shorts, and a Philadelphia Black Dance 
Troup, there will also be many oppor- 
tunities for participation in the arts. 
A madrigal group from Log College 
Junior High School will, after perform- 
ing, open for clinic with interested prac- 
ticing and frustrated vocalists. Saturday 
morning will again provide several drama 
workshops including one on set design 
and comments by Mr. J. C. D. Field on 
"The Interpretation of Shakespeare," 
followed by area high school drama 

Jeff Roehm, sophomore leather-crafts- 
man who has recently displayed his wares 
in the college center, is coordinating the 
crafts end of the festival spectrum. He 
hopes to procure a number of pottery 
wheels so that passers-by may stop and 
discover in themselves a latent genius for 
pot-throwing. Plans in the making also 
include workers in macrame, weaving, 
leather goods, and woodcarving. 

Many survivors of the First festival 
anxiously await "plenty of free con- 
certs." Already scheduled musical talent

participant will be realized: "I've heard was to hold classes in the teachers' and 
so much about last year's festival. I want 
to see if it's really as great as everyone 
says. Besides I've never really seen an Arts 
Festival before." 

Don't worry C. D., one thing that 
you are sure to find at the festival is, as 
another student has said, "plenty of free 
concerts, lots of thingies hanging all over 
the place and joy." That's what you'll

each other lived. In discussing poetry 
classes, she said the one "mortal sin" a 
teacher can do is to make the students 
"dissect a poem that they haven't ex- 
perienced as a whole." She insisted that 
a poem should be read aloud many 
times." She compared poetry appreci- 
ation with appreciation of music. She

Oh yes. . . and one emphatic sug-

perately to get involved in matters soc- 
iological, political, historical, and yet 
these three areas are well below the 
critical mass of a viable department. 
(Should my choice of words imply that 
the sentences "...and yet..." are meant as 
a criticism of these departments I dis- 
claim any such motives. I am amazed at 
what these departments have achieved in 
their anemic state.) 

Now, since the educational operating 
budget is met almost entirely by the 
students any increase of any of these 
(or other) departments must be pre- 
ceeded by an increase in the student 
population. The ratio appears to be 25 
students per new faculty member and a 
minimal buildup only in the mentioned 
departments requires an increase of at 
least 300 students. 

In the fall 1970 no less than 49 
classes and 11 labs (not counting the 
Music Department) had less than 1 1 stu- 
dents enrolled, 28 had between 11 and 
20, 40 between 21 and 30. That indi- 
cated that our students specialize (per- 
haps only because they have to) and that 
there are not enough of them. Instead 
of the very small uneconomical class 
being the exception, it is the rule. I sub- 
mit that a private college is among other 
things a financial undertaking which 
should be run-all other facets being 
nearly equal -with the sharpest efficien- 
cy- Just as there is a smallest feasible bus 
company there is a smallest feasible pri- 
vate college. The figure above shows that 
LVC seems to be too small to be econo- 
mically feasible. Most courses at the up- 
per level can be taught in classes with 
about 15 students. If the doubling of the 
size of the courses with 10 minus stu- 
dents were to follow simple arithmetic- 
aid let's assume that for simplicity's 
sake-then to have no (or hardly any) 
^economically small classes we should

schools do not allow classes with less

There is another compelling reason

Since I would rather see LVC suffer 
through the pains of controlled and 
planned growth than through the agony 
of a consumptive death I detailed the 
reasons for an increase in enrollment as 

A new album by the Firesign Thea- 
tre is always a cause for celebration 
(among the initiated), but the release of 
their latest album , Dear Friends (Colum- 
bia KC 31099; a double set, is especially 
welcome because it is the first truly 
approachable Firesign album, an album 
that is accessable to the listener upon 
the very first listening, an album that is 
not laden in deep messages and double 
entendres. It is by no means shallow or 
trivial, though. Firesign 's humor is as so- 
phisticated as ever, requiring attentive 
listening to gain the complete effect of 
the "sketches," but in the case of Dear 
Friends it is for the first time bite-sized, 
compacted and distilled from the imag- 
inative excrescences that have appeared 
largely unedited on the troupe's first 
four albums. This editing process has re- 
sulted in an album that is as hard-hitting 
on the first listening as the first four 
are once the pieces of their verbal puz- 
zels are mental assembled (a process 
demanding repeated listening over a rath- 
er short time period for all but the most 
enlightened listener). This is a great aid 
in broadening audiences for any artist, 
and it should do just that for Firesign; 

and almost mandatory preparation for the at last, Firesign for the masses!

future. We should ensure that our pro- 
gram is complete, that the College 
operates economically, that the College 
has the elasticity to responsibly satisfy 
educational demands, and that the facul- 
ty can weather the perilous 80's. I in- 
vite Dr. Kearney to demonstrate why 
these aims or my suggested way to 
reach these aims are "fatuous" (Web- 
ster: "complacently or inanely fool- 

To increase the size of the student 
body and to maintain (or improve) pre- 
sent standards of academic achievement 
at the same time is obviously not easy. 
Since it is unlikely that the College will 
allow a change in its somewhat provin- 
cial identify we cannot hope to attract the 
many young people from Pa., N.J., and 
N.Y., who are both good and openly 
liberal. Therefore we must extend the 
area where LVC is known. An out- 
standing basketball or football program 
would certainly achieve that. It is not an 
accident that no local paper ever carried a 
story about Florida State University un- 
til it had an outstanding basketball 

It is a time honored occupation of 
academic faculty members everywhere to 
denigrate the efforts of the athletic de- 
partments-even their existence-so Dr. 
Kearney is in good company. As they 
do seem to forget that these athletes 
fight their heart out for the honor of the 
institution and that their efforts could 
bring more funds to the college than the 
faculty ever will. To state a bad case of 
non sequitur, I just cannot believe that 
all the universities and colleges in the 
two "top 20" basketball lists are lousy 

Since no public relations director in 
the country knows how to "simply 
publicize those things we do best" I in- 
vite Dr. Kearney to tell us how to do it. 
Until he does my suggestion looks better. 

Try as I May I cannot avoid the con- 
clusion that the future of LVC will be 
gravely troubled. Also, my reasoning 
leading to the plan for doubling the en- 
rollment seems to me to have no funda- 
mental flaws. I most seriously ask any- 
one who can prove me wrong at an 
essential point to do so. After all, I rathei 
like LVC as it is. 

This album is a collection of the best 
of Firesign Theatre's excellent and large- 
ly unrecognized semi-syndicated radio 
show of the same name. It has been 
obvious in the past Firesign albums that 
these men are extremely aware of the 
heritage of radio in recorded humor, and 
are masters of the techniques involved as 
a result (noting "Nick Danger," which 
graces the entire second side of How 
Can You Be In Two Places At Once 
When You're Not Anywhere At All? 
and the overall effect of their other 
albums in creating vivid yet incomplete 

of "Bear-baiting" by means of some 
brilliant word-twisting. Other such im- 
provisations include a discussion about 
"blue mutant" chinchillas that are actual- 
ly tiny machines, a Spanish-speaking ed- 
ucational program reading (and mis-trans- 
lating) the Deputy Dan coloring book, 
Mayor Dropyer LaGuardia reading the 
funny papers, and "Great Unclaimed 
Melodies," a radio record bargain pack- 
age featuring the "revenge Duet" from 
II Vino Confuso (Ella est un PorkoW). 

There is some prepared material on 
this album as well. This includes the 
fantastic Space Commander /Salamander 
Mark Time and "his rocky junket bud- 
dy, Bob Bunny" in which the hero and 
his sidekick divert the guard covering 
their underground jailcell on the planet 
Jupiter by urinating through the bars of 
the door and thus make good their es- 
cape attempt, or do they? Also included 
is a radio slot for Bob's Bazerko Lounge 
where the customers "refuel themselves 
in an air of righteous indignation." These 
are cuts which, like the others, rely on 
surface impact rather than deep signifi- 
cance that is often built in at the studio. 
They are short and to the point, unlike 
the earlier, rambling adventures into ver- 
bal fantasy. And they work. 

This seems to be the album that 
Firesign Theatre needed to break free. It 
is every bit as complete and (in its own 
way) thought-provoking as its predeces- 
sors without being as overpowering and 
demanding of the listener. The thought 
of a double album of Firesign material 
was, before this album, almost intimi- 
dating. This set is conclusive proof, how- 
ever, that Firesign can, has, and will al- 
ways work in the short sketch form of re- 
corded humor with success, and thus of- 
fer themselves in a more readily acces- 

Strangers (also covered by the Carpen- 
ters, who made a Number 1 single hit 
out of it). He has written other songs as 
well, most of which merit attention as 
sterling examples of the pop /rock genre, 
and included them in his debut album as 
a recording artist, Just an Old-Fashioned 
Love Song (A & M SP4327). It features 
the title song (recently a Top-of-the-Pops 
smash in the hands of Three Dog Night), 
and aforementioned duo of hits, and 
other pop songs of mixed quality from 
the interesting to the banal. As is often 
the case, Williams is not really that good 
a singer, but he has a small, little-boy 
sound that fits his material rather well. 
He's sort of a male Claudine Longet in 
this respect. Sure, it gets a bit grating if 
listened to repeatedly, but as a break (a 
la Neil Diamond) it is soothing, a blend 
of the best of teeny-bop sensibility, 
Broadway schlock, and dentist-office 
slickness. It's not all that bad musically, 
with some interesting keyboard and un- 
usually judicious use of strings, and it 
won't offend Mom. It's sure to get a lot 
of airplay on conservative FM stations 
("the fine music station on your FM 
dial. . .") and all but the most jaded 
hard-rock freaks can find some appeal in 
it. As pop music goes it's a trend-setter, 
an album of good Muzak. Buy it and 
surprise yourself. 

David Bowie is a British folk-rocker 
who wears drag on occasion and looks 
a great deal like Lauren Bacall as a re- 
sult. He writes songs about Andy War- 
hold, Bob Dylan, floozies, and the Apoca 
lypse that are a trifle odd to say the 
least. They are very good, however; as a 
message, the statement made by his song 
"Life on Mars" is worth about a dozen 
"American Pies. " He plays guitar and rud- 
imentary piano (he leaves the tough 
piano parts to Rick Wakeman). As a 
songwriter/singer he is to messers Tay- 
lor, Young (post-Everybody Knows This 
is Nowhere), and Mclean and ms's King, 

images for the listener to fill in men- sable format to those whoc would have Mitchell, and Simon what last season's 

tally). Thus it is logical that they should 
procede with presentations for which 
they are best prepared and suited. Dear 
Friends is a residual of this work, 
nothing more, but in this basic fact lies 
much of the beauty of this album. It is an 
indication that these artists are capable 
of performance outside the admittedly 
artificial surroundings of the recording 
studio, and thus a revelation of pre- 
viously unrecognized ability. Most of the 
cuts on this record are improvisations 
done in the radio booth at air time, and 
thus they are free from the confines of 
overdubbed embelishment (as well as 
being restricted by their "nakedness" of 
content). This seems to have made Fire- 
sign at once both more imaginative and 
more careful, grasping the exact words 
for their needs out of thin air with an 
uncanny and obvious ease of expression 
that is, frankly, unexpected from a group 
of humorists so steeped in studio per- 
fectionism. "I Was A Cock-Teaser at 
Roosterama" is a good example of this. 
Based loosely on the relationship be- 
tween bullfighting and cock-fights, it be- 
gins innocently enough, with appropriate 
Chicano voices that would make Cheech 
and Chong envious. But from here the 
boys expand it to encorporate nuances 
that are both off-color and moralistic, 
and end with an etymological discussion 

previously been alienated while at the 
time retaining and satisfying their old 
audience (and whetting their appetites 
for more material). It's interesting to 
note that Lily Tomlin's first album was 
the winner of a Grammy in comedy al- 
bums this year (for releases of 1971). 
Will Firesign, and their distinctive brand 
of audial theatre, break the stranglehold 
of the stand-up comedian on this honor? 
I hope so. Dear Friends may well turn 
the trick. 

In Short . . . 

Pop music has a rising star in Paul 
Williams. I am sure all of you have heard 
his song "We Only Just Begun" as re- 
corded by the Carpenters, as well as his 
theme for the movie Lovers and Other 

Pittsburgh Pirates were to, say, the 
Phillies or the Padres. He doesn't whim- 
per; he screams. His newest album is 
Hunky Dory (RCS LSP 4623). It is 

Grace Slick and Paul Kantner re- 
leased Sun fighter (Grunt FTR 1002) a 
few months back. It has been called the 
successor to Blows Against the Empire. 
That may be true, but except for "Sil- 
ver Spoon" and the title track the pack- 
aging concept surpasses the material in- 
side. It's a bit boring. Rolling Stone isn't 
right all the time. In my opinion. 

Nest issue I'm going to concentrate 

on the savior of American radio rock 

and perhaps the best artist of all at the 
moment. Guess who?

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, April 20, 197^ 

by Mike Rhoads 


Valley's lacrosse team, under rookie 
coach Roger Gaeckler, started this year's 
season off on the right foot by downing 
Dickinson 9-4 and then routing PMC 
11-4. The victory over Dickinson was re- 
latively easy, as the Dutchmen jumped 
off to an insurmountable 7-1 lead after 
the first two periods of play. Jeff Rowe 
and Penn Bowditch led the Valley at- 
tack with two goals apiece, while Denny 
Camuse, Ken Gilberg, Don Singer, Gary 
Hunter, and Bill Tarbutton notched sin- 
gle markers. After Arctic weather forced 
the postponement of a scheduled match 
with Haverford on April 8, the Dutch- 
men took on PMC four days later in 
their first home game. The encounter 
was not as lopsided as the final score 
would indicate -Valley's margin at the 
midpoint was only 4-3, but five fourth- 
period tallies put the game on ice. Co- 
Captain Rowe outscored the entire Dick- 
inson team with an outstanding six-goal 
afternoon. Ken Gilberg, the team's other 
co-captain, added two more, while Bow- 
ditch, Camuse, and Hunter rounded out 
the LVC scoring. The stickmen will host 
Kutztown this Thursday and Western 
Maryland on April 29, with an April 
22 visit to Muhlenberg completing this 
month's schedule. 


As of this writing, the major league 
baseball strike has just been resolved, as 
agreement was reached on the issue of 
lost pay. The main point of the strike, 
however, was the amount of the owner's 
contribution to the players' pension 
plan -an arrangement which exists so that 
such underpaid poverty victims as Hen- 
ry Aaron and Carl Yastrzemski will be 
able to stay off welfare in their later 
years. Meanwhile, the equally underpaid 
diamond denizens of our own campus re- 
jected temptation and courageously de-

with three second-inning runs, but Val- 
ley crossed the plate once in the third 
and tied it an inning later on a two-run 
homer by Dan Robey. However, this was 
about all the offense the Dutchmen could 
manage, as the team was limited to three 
hits by the opposition pitching. Not to 
be outdone, the defense also contributed 
to the one-sided final score by com- 
mitting five errors. 

Even considering this opening-day 
shellacking, however, this team has e- 
nough talent to give a rough time to 
many of its opponents. Upcoming home 
games find the Dutchmen entertaining 
Penn State (Capitol Campus) in an 
April 22 twinbill and Drew Univer- 
sity on April 29. It should be an inter- 
esting season. 


Lebanon Valley's thinclads started 
this season off in traditional fashion, 
dropping their first two meets to Dick- 
inson and Muhlenberg. However, the team 
improved on last season's performances 
against these same two schools, and 
chances are that this year's squad will 
improve on last year's unenviable re- 
cord. The meet with Dickinson, especial- 
cidedtoplay ball as scheduled, a decision ly, had a number of bright moments, as 
which pleases all the baseball-starved the Dutchmen performed well in several 
fans in this area. However, their dreams events. Freshman John Halbleib led the 
of a possible World Series berth were way, not only registering one first (110- 
rudely shattered when Elizabeth town yard dash) and two seconds but also 
rallied in the late innings to dump the participating on the victorious 440-yd.

one first (120 highs) and one second.

(Sumpman). However, Dickinson domin- 
ated the remaining field events for an 
85-60 decision. Against Muhlenberg this 
weakness in field was even more glaring, 
as the Dutchmen gained only four points 
(out of a possible 63). Despite the 107- 
38 final score, though, the Dutchmen 
again held their own in most of the 
track tests. The mile relay team of Rick 
Zingg, Tom Chesney, Jim McLaughlin, 
and Frank Kushler picked up five points, 
while Chesney and Zingg also took a 
second and a third to lead in total 
points. This Saturday the team meets 
Haverford and Johns Hopkins (at Hop- 
kins), then returns home to face F&M 
April 27 and Western Maryland the fol- 
lowing Saturday. 


The LVC team, under the direction 
of Coach Gerald Petrofes, compiled a re- 
cord of three wins and two losses in its 
first five outings. Both losses came on 
April 6 in a triangular match, with the 
final score Albright-391, Moravian-406, 
Lebanon Valley -4 10. Jerry Frey shot a 
73, the second lowest round of the day, 
to lead the Dutchmen. However, the team 
as a whole bounced back on April 10, 
shooting a cumulative 424 to defeat 
Wilkes (438), Lycoming (440), and F&M 
(447). Frey and Chet Mosteller led all 
individual participants by coming in with 
scores of 78 and 80 respectively, while 
Bob Johns' 85 was good enough for the 
sixth lowest round among the twenty 
golfers. The team will host Delaware 
Valley and Western Maryland this Fri- 
day, following next week by matches 
with Dickinson, Elizabethtown, and Muh- 

Compliments of

It seems that the sports program here 
at ol' LVC is currently undergoing some 
growth. We already have baseball (again), 
and talk is rampant about the addition of 
tennis, soccer, and God-knows-what-else, 
although the rumors concerning an MAC 
college division Bullfighting league are, 
as yet, unsubstantiated. One problem 
confronts most of the proposed sports, 
however: who would come to the match- 
es? Tennis and soccer both have select 
groups of what can best be described as 
fanatics. But short of moving the entire 
population of Sao Paolo, Brazil to Ann- 
ville each fall for soccer season or trying 
to recruit Chris Evert, no one but the 
aforementioned fanatics will be seen at 
these events. Obviously spectators aren't 
a prime ingredient in rattlesnake hunt- 
ing (also mentioned in close circles 
around campus, notably the Bio. Lab), 
and there would be little difficulty in 
drawing crowds to skydiving contests, 
but the question arises, "Who is crazy 
enough to risk being snake-bitten or 
dashed to the bosom of Mother Earth 
amid a tangle of nylon and silk?" Ad- 
mittedly the chances for filling such 
teams' rosters with fraternity pledges is 
great, if somewhat predictable and sadis- 
tic, and frosh are relatively expendable. 
Imagine the chants our cheering squad 
could come up with for these events: 
"Bite 'em again! Bite 'em again! Hard- 
er! Harder!" or, perhaps, "Land in the 
target! Land in the target! Splat! Splat! 
Splat ! ! ! " or maybe even "Rah ! " The pos- 
sibilities are endless. One thing, though; 
aren't these two blood-boilers a trifle too 
sophisticated for sedate, moderate little 
Annville? Do they rtot fail to relate to the 
spiritual awareness of the area? Exactly! 
What we need is a sport to which every 
Annvilliean can relate, students and town- 
ies, young and old, dynamic and feeble, 
all alike! We need a sport that arouses 
the primal instincts of men of all walks 
of life! We need a sport that wakes up 
the students after every Chapel service! 
In short. . . 


Look at the facts. We have one sport 
capable of drawing a good-sized paying 
audience (basketball), and another that 
is a fair draw in a rather short season 
(football). We need a sport that can at- 
tract the people and give them an even- 
ing's worth of pure entertainment, with 
all of the thrills, chills, and spills that 
they could possibly want, and then some. 
Roller Derby is a proven gate attraction. 
A good match-up can usually fill up a 
hall the size of the Hershey Sports Arena. 
And the people who go to roller derby 
matches are an amazing cross section of 
American life. One is constantly amazed 
at the number of different truck mechan- 
ics, bikers, alcoholic housewives, and ex- 
hibitionists there are in this great land. 
And a great number of these people seek

roller derby as their source of spiritual 
release. LVC would be doing these 
pie, the backbone of the civilization as \y e 
know it, an invaluable service. 

A small initial outlay would of course 
be needed to prepare the campus f 0r 
this great sporting attraction, and the at- 
tendent masses it gathers. Our q Ua( j 
would serve admirably as a parking i ot 
and with enough asphalt and a diesel 
fuel franchise located in front of the Cha- 
pel (Good God Gas, perhaps), the truck, 
ers would flock to Annville like flies to 
honey. The familiar cry, "Hey Mac, Get 
me a brew!" would resound from the 
hallowed walls of Lynch Gym as the bi- 
kers bop on in and take their places in 
the stands (directly across from the fi re 
axes and high pressure nozzles). The 
banked track could be constructed with 
materials left over from gym repairs; the 
warped floor pieces removed from the 
basketball court would provide cheap, 
and effective, banked turns. Protective 
railing around said track could be "requi- 
sitioned" from the heating pipes in the 
Ad. building, afixed as they would be tc 
simple two-by-four supports around the 
rim of the track. This facilitates instant 
spectacular injuries (proven crowd-pleas- 
ers) and affording weaponry for an oc- 
casional bludgeon fight to spice things 
up a bit. Add to this sum the expense 
for a rather large quantity of platinum 
blue hair dye (mandatory for the wo- 
men's teams) and gold lamrf uniforms with 
chartreuse trim (after all, blue and white 
is a bit drab), not to mention the cost of 
skates for two complete teams plus re- 
serves, and it becomes apparent the Rol- 
ler Derby is a mite expensive. Remember, 
though, that the losses will easily be re- 
couped after about two weeks of home 
action (three nights a week) against such 
teams as the Eastern Warriors, the De- 
troit Red Devils, and the Bay Area Bomb- 

What a sight that would be, seeing 
the squads of gold-clad Dastardly Dutch- 
men and Dutchettes blasting around the 
banked course elbowing Joan Weston 
here, decking Ronnie Rains there, throw- 
ing an occassional jammer out of the ring, 
drawing three minute penalties for knif- 
ing one of the officials, and consulting 
their scripts in the infield among the 
members of the English department (who 
will doubtless welcome the chance to 
write the scripts for each match)! Ima- 
gine the faint wisp of Rolling Rock pre- 
mium beer wafting over the playing area 
in a cloud of cigarette smoke! Imagine 
the bikers smashing an official 's skull with 
a tire iron! Imagine thirty-seven hundred 
alcoholic housewives throwing up! Im a "

tained in the student handbook. 

The attitude of all White Hats is to be firm, showing no favoritism, 
an d to be friendly and helpful. 

Next year Freshmen will not be required to pick up rocks on the A- 
fleld or to attend all home football games; although the latter is 
Wrongly urged. 

A Committee of four will be appointed to oversee all White Hat 
ctivities and may dismiss any White Hat who is found to display an

TUESDAY, MAY 16 6:30 P.M. 

Princeton, N.J. -Albert and Maclin 
Guerard, the latest National Humanities 
Series travelers, will appear as part of 
the Spring Arts Festival on May 12 at 
8:00 p.m. in the Center Theater as the 
last of three programs in the Time Out 
For Man series. 

Dr. and Mrs. Guerard are both ex- 
perts in the field of Literature. Dr. 
Guerard has taught English at Amherst 
College, Harvard and Stanford Univer- 
sity. At Stanford, where he is currently 
Professor of Literature, he has established 
two new Ph.D. caregories, one in Com- 
parative Literature, and another in Mo- 
dern Thought and Literature. He has 
edited four volumes of literary criticism, 
and has written critical introductions to 
novels by Conrad, Hardy, Dickens, Saul 
Bellow, and others. Maclin Guerary ma- 
jored in English at Radcliffe, was an 
editorial reader for Harvard University 
Press, has co-edited literary studies with 
her husband, and is currently as In- 
structor of Creative Writing at Stanford. 

The Guerards put their scholarship 
to good use in their new presentation, 


The Touch of Time. The program uses 
the works of some of the greatest writ- 
ers in the English language to explore the 
relationships between memory and cre- 
ativity, and is full of expert insights into 
the literary achievements of figures such 
as Thomas Hardy, Joseph Conrad, and 
Charles Dickens. 

But the Guerards have gone beyond 

the limits of scholarship in The Touch of 
Time for they have opened the doors as 
well to their own sense of inspiration 
and nostalgia -and in so doing have ex- 
posed a different area of their achieve- 
ment. Both Albert and Maclin Guerard 
are published authors themselves. Their 
knowledge of the secrets of literary out- 
put, then, is first-hand.

Dr. Houston Explores The Mind 

by Ruth Rehrig 

On April 17 Dr. Jean Houston spoke 
in the Center Theatre, not on the top- 
ic of "The Effects of LSD on Per- 
sonality" (as advertised) but rather on 
the field of mind expansion without 
the use of drugs in which she has been 
doing research since 1965. 

In the beginning moments of her 
talk, Dr. Houston suggested the possi- 
bility of a new way of being for hum- 
anity: that we may now be witnessing 
the emergence of a totally new way of 
existence. We may be in the process of 
becoming the co-trustees of our own 

Mind and brain research is now 
reaching the golden age. Man should 
gradually be able to learn to use his 
abilities to their fullest potential. Dr. 
Houston and her associates at the 
Foundation of Mind Research are ex- 
ploring these possibilities of the mind. 

In medieval times, when man want- 
ed to get below the surface of his con- 
sciousness, he fasted, ate certain foods, 
and went into ecstasies. The Foundation 
is researching other non drug ways to 
explore the mind. Dr. Houston feels 
that this kind of research is more inter- 
esting than the drug work, since non- 
drug exploration can be better con- 

Throughout the rest of her presenta- 
tion Dr. Houston talked about the var- 
ious discoveries that have been made 
concerning the mind, and some of the 
methods through which certain kinds 
of mind expansion have been achieved. 
One of these is concerned with the im- 
age-making process of the mind. For 
example, a subject put into a totally 
dark room (sensory deprivation) will 
eventually begin making his own im- 
ages in his mind. 

A second technique, that of sensory 
overload, is achieved by surrounding 
the subject with an 8 foot screen. 
Slides are projected using a polarized 
light so that the colors and forms of the 
slides flow into each other, producing 
a fascinating effect. Dr. Houston calls 
these "inscapes." Electronic music or 
Zen chants are played, the subject feels 
the vibration around him, and there may 
even be wind flowing. The idea here 

—photo by dennis camuse 

is that after a while the subject will 
become a part of the slides, projecting 
his mind processes inside. Creativity 
and the ability to solve problems seems 
to be stimulated by such an audiovisual 

The most hopeful of the new devel- 
opments is feedback training. One of 
the experiments she talked about con- 
cerned skin-temperature tone. A ther- 
mostat is placed on the wrist to mea- 
sure the temperature. The subject tries 
to make his temperature rise on his 
wrist. The machine will "feed back" 
or indicate by sound the temperature 
change. As skin temperature goes up, 
the forehead will cool. This procedure 
can thus alleviate migraine headaches. 
The same kind of feedback procedure 
can be used to control the heartbeat, 
and to train muscle response in athletes,

Alpha Psi Omega will present the 
musical Camelot on May 5, 6, and 7. 
There will be four performances: Fri- 
day at 8:00 P.M., Saturday at 2:00 P.M. 
and 8:00 P.M., nad Sunday at 2:00. 
Seats for all performances are reserved, 
with tickets selling for $2.00. 

Based on The Once and Future King 
by T. H. White, the book and lyrics of 
Camelot were written by Alan Jay Ler- 
ner, and the music composed by Fred- 
erick Loewe. The show first opened at 
the Majestic Theatre in New York City 
in 1960 after two off-Broadway engage- 
ments. A few of the songs in the show 
are "The Lusty Month of May," "C'est 
Moi," "Before I Gaze at You Again," 
and "What Do the Simple Folks Do?'' 

The director of Camelot, Steven 
Spiese, is a senior from East Petersburg, 
Pa. He has been extremely active in 
dramatics, appearing in the recent Win- 
ter's Tale as Polixenes and in Look Back 
in Anger as Jimmy, among other pro- 
ductions to numerous to mention. He 
directed the play Live Spelled Backwards 
which was produced last year. 

Richard J. Zweier, Jr. of Lebanon 
Pa. is directing the chorus and orchestra. 

He has directed the orchestras of Taming 
of the Shrew and Cabaret and the chorus- 
es of Ruddigore, My Fair Lady, and A 
Funny Thing Happened on the Way to 
the Forum, in addition to appearing as 
an actor in various plays. 

Leads in the paly include Richard 
Schneider as King Arthur, Ruth Wilson 
as Guinevere, and Rick Bowen as Lance- 

This will be the first college produc- 
tion and first musical for Ruth Wilson, a 
junior from Lewistown, Pa. She is a mem- 
ber of the Concert Choir, and has parti- 
pated in high school and community 

Richard Schneider, a freshman from 
Trenton, New Jersey, has appeared in 
two college productions. He was active 
in high school drama, working in the 
capacity of actor, director, and music 
director: he has also appeared in a summer 
stock production of Gypsy. 

Rick Bowen, Manchester, Pa., has 
played Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady 
and Charles in High Spirits; has directed 
Lion in Winter and Look Back in Anger, 
in addition to participating in various 
other college productions.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, May 4, 1973 

Next weekend Lebanon Valley College will be the scene of the Second 
Annual Spring Arts Festival. Last year's Festival attracked thousands to 
campus to enjoy a weekend of music, people, and even education. 
This year the Festival expands to begin Thursday, May 11, with an 
evening performance at 8:00 by Dave Brubeck and his son Darius. This 
concert promises to be one of the most exciting of the season with 
"Two Genrations of Brubeck." 

The rest of the weekend (no classes on Friday) is packed with art, 
photography, drama, music, and most importantly, people. Campus 
groups such as the Symphonic Band, Concert Choir, and Jazz Band will 
perform along with groups from other colleges, and groups from the 
community such as Sing Out Lebanon, Ephrata Chloister Choir , and 
Hershey Ballet Company. There are also single performances, craft 
displays, scrieving, and other events just too varied and numerous to 

The point of this article, however, is not merely to publicize the 
Arts Festival, but to point out that the Festival Committee needs help 
if we are to have another successful Festival. It is important to note 
that the Spring Arts Festival is a student-run project. As of this date, 
there has not been enough support from the student body. People are 
needed to publicize on other campuses, recruit performers, organize e- 
vents, and to just type and send letters. Whatever your particular talent 
—or the lack of it, S.A.F. has some way for you to become involved. Any 
ideas or plans can be brought to the S.A.F. office in the Quittie room 
of the College Center and incorporated into the total program. 

The Spring Arts Festival needs your help ! 

NOTE-The next issue of La Vie will be the last issue of the 1971- 
1972 college year. Ant letters or comments should be submitted as 
soon as possible. The final date for inclusion is Friday, May 12, 1972. 






Comment on the Future of LVC 

by President Frederick P. Sample 

Before my seeing Dr. Joerg Mayer's "Comment on Comment" in the 
last issue of La Vie, I responded positively to Miss Wilkins' invitation to 
give some reaction to the article. After reading the statement I came to 
the conclusion that the invitation was extended to me because Miss Wil- 
kins suspected that I would disagree with and would challenge several 
statements and premises. She was right 

Partly because the article is well writ 

ten, a quick, first run through the argue- 
ment gives one an initial impression of 
soundness and sensitivity. There seems 
to be a formula which will ensure and 
will stabilize the future of Lebanon Val- 
ley College. Our College and most all 
others have been searching since birth 
for that formula. Some weaknesses of the 
College appear to be amply identified, 
and the methods for overcoming them 
seem powerfully logical. 

The second or third reading of the 
statement, however, raises some serious 
doubts. I find sometimes that the weak- 
nesses are not fully and carefully identi- 
fied. In fact a few figures are badly mis- 
used. The formula for success sounds like 
a familiar tune. It is basically the path 
followed by many colleges and univer- 
sities whose financial woes have hardly 
lessened. Indeed in many cases they 
have worsened substantially. It would be 
a bit unfair for me to give examples, but 
I shall be happy to lend the study of the 
Pennsylvania Commission for Indepen- 
dent Colleges and Universities to anyone 
who wishes to see for himself or her- 

It is impossible to argue against our 
need to examine ourselves coolly, ration- 
ally, broadly, and deeply. There are un- 
doubtedly some financial problems which 
are related to size. Some institutions 
are too small and some are too large to 
make financial good sense. But one must 
not be easily trapped into thinking of an 
optimum size which leads to the con- 
clusion that all institutions should be the 
same size. Have we not yet learned the 
fallacy of this conclusion? Size is related 
to purpose. It is related to demand. The 
quality of an educational institution is 
rarely a function of its size. 

It is true that all private colleges and 
universities are in fiscal crisis. Many pub- 
lic institutions are in the same crisis. 
Careful examination and open discussion 
are necessary. In our case it is hardly open 
disclosure to say that student tuition and 
fees cover 92% of the educational opera- 
ting budget. That sounds alarming. It 
sounds much more alarming to say that 
tuition and fees cover 150% of instruc- 
tional costs, and yet that is true ac- 
cording to the method we use to cate- 
gorize budget items. It is much more 
meaningful to inform people that tuition 
and fees currently cover only 81% of the 
costs for operating our program for stu- 
dents. This program does not include 
the auxiliary enterprises which consist of 
dining hall, dormitories, snack shop, and 
college store. The 81% drops to less than 
75% when provision of buildings is con- 
sidered as a cost of program. 

All of its life our College has sought 
financial assistance from its Church. The 
response has been gratifying at times and 
disappointing at times. Reasons for dif- 
ferent responses are baffling and beyond 
my comprehension. It is obvious to one 
who reads our history, however, that 
Lebanon Valley 's death would have come 
on several occasions had it not received 
help from the Church and Churchmen. 

While the article refers to phasing 
out support from the United Methodist 
Church, it fails miserably to give any 
clarification to this action. It fails to state 
that the Church support for 1971-1972 
has increased over last year. It fails to 
say that 1972-1973 will probably show 
another increase. For the years following 
1972-1973 there are extremely difficult 
questions to answer, and I wish I could 
predict with confidence a great increase. 
Although I am unable to make such a 
prediction, I shall not over-simplify by 
forecasting a reduction. At this writing 
it can be said that there will probably 

be a reduction from one source of church 
support and hopefully an increase from 
another source. Let us appropriately 
pray for that. 

To continue with financial problems, 
let me say something about endowment. 
If there were something ignoble and un- 
stable about colleges whose budgets ex- 
ceed their endowments, a rather small 
per cent should stay open. Every insti- 
tution wants more endowment. If closing 

standing graduates, and some of the out. 
standing graduates are willing to com e 
back to the institution as members of th e 
faculty. Pity the college that has no such 
ability on its part nor any such willi„g 
ness on the part of the alumni. 

What per cent of a faculty should be 
alumni? I do not subscribe to 100% 
75%, or 50%, but I do not know of an y 
sacrosanct figure. 

Questions of recruitment and enrol), 
ment are not ones which can be handled 
fairly with statements which tend to 
touch only a half or one-fourth the p ro . 
blems. It is surely to be expected that 
most institutions in eastern Pennsylvan- 
ia will have a large percentage of stu- 
dents from Pennsylvania, New Jersey 
and New York. In 1972 this expectation 
comes not only from location, but also 

is the alternative, our society will lose its from public policy regarding scholarship 
unique system of higher education in a programs, the growth of public institu- 

hurry. One cross section of colleges and 
universities shows about 60% of them 
with budgets exceeding endowments. In- 
cluded are Boston University, Syracuse 
University, and Illinois Wesley an. 

There are two ways to make the en- 
dowment greater than the budget. In- 
crease the endowment. This action usual- 
ly occurs as an unexpected blessing. It is 
difficult to plan for it. The other way is 
to decrease the enrollment. The endow- 
ment will hardly catch up with expen- 
ditures by increasing the enrollment. Jt 
is obvious that an increased enrollment 
reduces the endowment support per stu- 
dent. This reduction is part of most every 
institution's problem. 

tions, the nature of the Pennsylvania 
institutions, and many demographic and 
social influences. 

Probably one of the most misleading 
statements in the article is the one per- 
taining to enrollment projections. Noth- 
ing is said of the decrease in freshmen 
enrollments that already occurred in 
four-year colleges last fall. Total enroll- 
ment was already down at American 
University, Northwestern University, Syr- 
acuse University, Allegheny College, 
Dickinson College, and Westmar College 
to name but a few different kinds of 
institutions. To think that the traditional 
projects of enrollments will be valid is a 
bit shallow at this time. Many changes 

I have reacted enough to some of the in the strU cture of education will likely 
financial statements. Let me take a bit ma k e the projections for campus-based 
of time to express comment on some of institutions totally inaccurate, 
the other issues. Although I am uncertain Last fall there were nearly 155,00 
exactly why reference is made to the unfilled places for freshmen throughout 
30% of our full and associate professors me nation. September, 1972, will prob- 
who are alumni, I add the fact that less ably ^ QVf little change . To speak of 
_than 16%_o_f pur assistant professors and 
25% of our instructors are alumni. Upon 

checking the catalogs of Swarthmore, 
Amherst, Trinity, Haverford, and many 
other widely recognized institutions one 
finds a sizable portion of alumni on the 
faculty. To me these figures say that 
each institution is fortunately able to 
bring to its faculty some of its out- 

doubling the enrollment at any private 
college without a reduction in quality 
is probably fatuous. A sharp growth in 
enrollment will not increase the quality. 
It will change the nature of the college. 

Special efforts are needed in many 
areas and recruitment of students will

one glass of orange juice at breakfast; 
the cafeteria should have one part of it 
set aside to take sandwiches, like tuna 
or egg salad, for the people who don't 
want the main meal; and also, there 
should be a legal dietician instead of 
just a chef, because George Landis is 
not a true dietician. 
Tim Trone, Jr.: 

Ice should be allowed to be taken 
out of the dining hall, since they have 
two ice machines and they can make 
more than enough for any needs they 
have of ice. 
Jay Catherman, Soph.: 

They should start lunch at 11:15 
for people who have 12 o'clock classes, 
and also the food is much too greasy. 
Tom Thompson, Sr.: 

Breakfast and lunch times should be 
made longer on weekends, because 
for someone who doesn't have a class 
until 2:30, it doesn't make much sense 
to get up at 7:30 for breakfast. The 
hours for lunch are alright. 
Carey Garland, Jr.: 

The breakfast time from 7:30 to 

8 o'clock should be lengthened - there's 
no reason why it can't, and it will gi ve 
more people jobs. At 9 or 9:30 they 
could even have coffee and donuts for 
those who don't have 8 o'clock classes. 

There should be a little more variety 
in menus, and a little bit more in the 
appearance of the food. 

There should be cards that would be 
punched for the meals you attend and 
this would be added to your bill at the 
end of the year. It would be more equi- 
table and more fair. 
Steve Beam, Jr.: 

I was at E-town for supper one Fri- 
day and they had five choices for a main 
course. It's hard for me to understand 
why our cafeteria can't have at leas 1 
two choices . For instance, Dave Gordon 
who is Jewish cannot eat ham. What 
does he do but eat eight slices of brea 
for supper and that's unfortunate. 

And I have to disagree with the pn 
cing. $2.50 is outrageous! No meal the* 
serve is worth $2.50. I don't think they 


use the old cafeteria enough, espe 
now with the smoking privileges in 
new cafeteria. For people who don 
smoke, smoking can be very nauseous 
The old cafeteria should be opened- 
Jim Sprecher, Fr.: 

On weekends, instead of break* 2 
and lunch, they should have a brun c • 
If you want both, you can have both^ 
think it would be cheaper and m° 

Dave Naugle, Jr.: n 
They should have all four lines op^ 
at all times so we can get enough 
in less time. It's rediculous to have 
lunch line all the way to the 
'when the other line isn't even °l

Yes, I Saw The Academy Awards 


by Ben Neideigh 

jj w could I have missed an event 
that? I watched them last year didn't 
'f "What did I think of them this year?", 
aS k. To tell the truth I don't rightly 
I was both pleased as never before 
with the entire 


^disgusted a 


the entire spectacle as it were, for 
simply that is what it is. A spec- 
Actresses and actors make specta- 

| eS of themselves, dancers make specta- 
cles of themselves, emcees make specta- 
cles of themselves, the set designers create 
I ectacles of their own; in short, the spec- 
kle makes a spectacle of itself. It was 

this year. I was pleased that they let the 
great Tennesee Williams present the Oscar 
for Best Factually-based Screenplay, but 
the others were the same crew of stars 
and bosoms. Raquel Welch (currently 
filming the movie version of Portnoy's 
Complaint) won this year's Best Chest 
award (unseating Lola Falana and Paula 
Prentiss who tied last year) by displaying 
her bountiful wares in what must have 
been the original gownless evening strap, 
edging out Sally Kellerman (last year's 
runner-up and this year's ditto) by a con- 
siderable margin. Jack Nicholson pro- 
vided the night's best put-down during 
his introduction of Best Film candidates, 

s0 spectacular it was embarrassing. And however, and gave me some reason to 

I hate being embarrassed, don't you? bdieve that George C. Scott isn't the only 

Who asked for the entire Seventh actor with some sense of what is im _ 

Army Battalion choreographed into Isaac p or tant. He slumped and drawled his way 

Hayes' "Theme for Shaft"? I certainly through the introductions as though he 

didn't. The song itself won an Oscar, 
something of a switch from the usual 
collection of pablum melodies that offer 
up one of their kind into the glaring 

was asleep, and announced the winner 
in a voice that seemed to say "Who 
gives a good Goddamn, anyway?" Per- 
haps it was his disappointment at the 

light of Awarddom. In the end, though, overlooking of Carnal Knowledge in the 

this brilliant piece of music was reduced 
to a battle between the rhythm guitarist, 
armed with a rather old Gibson Les Paul 
and the mandatory wah-wah pedal, and 
the dancers, armed with smoke bombs 
and typically vulgar jumpsuit costumes. 
Add to this Isaac himself replete with a 
harness of sorts fashioned from gold- 
plated tire chains seated behind the only 
Hammond C-3 on the West Coast that 
features both an Earl Scheib paint job 
and a set of George Barris kustom rollers 
and the picture is complete. On any other 
show (except Merv Griffin's) this kind of 
garbage would be rejected in an instant. 
But these are the Academy Awards, 
ladies and gents, where vulgar is beauti- 
ful and rhinestones are as valuable as 
diamonds. I wish they would have done 
with Isaac and his orchestra what they did 
with Karen and Richard Carpenter, and 
just set them up on a bare stage to do 
what they do best without the dubious 
aid of second-string choreographers. Afore- 
mentioned Carpenters are hereby cited 
for the most tasteful moment of the en- 
tire show (other than the Chaplin recog- 
nition ceremony). I wasn't embarrassed 
to be seen watching them. "Bless the 
Beasts and the Children" isn't all that 
bad, either. 

We were once again treated to another 
exhibition of Johnny Mathis and magic 
w 'ggling jaw in one of the performances 
of another nominated song (I forget 
w hich one). Enough said about that. 

Again we were treated to a variety of 
e mcees plucked from the rather buxom 
bosom of Tinseltown. Helen Hayes led 
of f. and didn't do a bad job for a rapidly 
^ng matron who has no business ap- 
pea "ng braless (you guessed it) and whose

What did I like? I liked Ben John-

cars for their supporting roles in The 
Last Picture Show, which in my estima- 
tion was light-years above French Con- 
niption (Fresh Conception! Fish Cor- 
ruption?) in quality, cinematography, and 
emotional power. I liked Michael Le- 
Grand's victory in Best Original Drama- 
tic Score for his music in Summer Of 
'42. I liked the opening song-and-dance 
collage of chronological Hollywoodia fea- 
turing Joel Grey for the basic hokiness 
it seemed to glorify. And believe it or not 
I was happy with Gene Hackman's Oscar 
for Finch Collection, even though I pre- 
ferred George C. Scott as a repeat for his 
incredible performance in the Oscar-win- 
ning (thanks to Paddy Chayefsky's screen- 
play) The Hospital. I loved the Chaplin 
exhibition at the end; it split my gut with 
laughter while at the same time driving 
misty-eyed ol'me into a sentimental funk. 
I loved Bob Hope not showing up. He 
was on a pre-A wards special and thus I 
could turn him off. 

Unfortunately I can still do without 
shots of the fountains out front every 
fifteen minutes, Henry Mancini's Orches- 
tra, Jane Fonda, five-minute acceptance 
speeches, plexiglass podium s, envelopes, 
Price Waterhouse official seals, tradition

mercial breaks, lousy jokes, Henry Fonda, 
monster movies nominated for Best Spe- 
cial Effects because only one other movie 
qualified, gold-plated tin-and-antimony 
statuettes, dumb starlets with big breasts 
and buttocks, Ann-Margaret, and all of 
the other nifty gimmicks that Hollywood 
is heir to. I'm finding out that I can do 
without the Annual Academy of Motion 
Pictures Arts and Sciences Awards Pre- 
sentation as well. 



On May 9, the Chapel-Convocation 
Program will present Rev. William Flan- 
ders. This 35-year-old, episcopal priest 
has given up the more traditional pulpit 
preaching for the use of music to com- 
municate the message of the gospel. 

A 1962 graduate of Virginia Theo- 
logical Seminary, Alexandria, Mr. Flan- 
ders served parishes in Virginia and Wash- 
ington, D.C., and was an assistant chap- 
lain at the University of Maryland. In 
1967, he says it dawned on him that 
folk hymns might be a way of giving 
new idioms to old theological language. 

According to Religious News Service, 
he began writing songs and singing them 
at the university. Along with some nud- 
ging-not altogether friendly, his friends 
say -from superiors, he moved out of the 
campus ministry into a music ministry. 
The Maryland United Campus Christian 
Fellowship, an acumenical organization, 
provided a fellowship to keep him and 
his family. 

Rev. Flanders does more than retell 
stories with musical accompaniment. He 
explained that he attempts to interpret 
and to develop phrases which might re- 
main with a hearer and grow into in- 
sight of fuller meaning. 

He views the modern folk hymns as 
a continuation of the Biblical practice 
of handing down the traditions, but he 
thinks the traditions should be in lang- 
uage relevant to the modern scene. 

Basically, all of Mr. Flanders' songs are 
about love. "Lord, may your grace al- 
ways precede and follow us," is the way 
he puts it lyrically. 

He has written such folk hymns as 
"Love is a Verb," "I Was Born To Be 
Me," "Tell That Child To Go Home," 
and "Blind Samson."

Future of LVC 

(Cont. from Page 2, Col. 5) 

always be one of them. It is no less an 
effort in any fine, small college. It is not 
an effort to double the enrollment. The 
effort is to increase or retain the quality, 
to gather together students who can and 
will benefit from the program. Many 
familiar names appear in the list of insti- 
tutions with 1200 or less students. Some 
are Amherst, Bennington, Bowdoin, Ham- 
ilton, Hiram, Haverford, MacMurray, 
Reed, St. John's, Swarthmore, and 

I could go on for a long time. Any- 
body who is really interested in the 
future of Lebanon Valley could do the 
same. More and more we must be ac- 
countable to those who are influenced by 
and concerned about our College. 

I must answer negatively to many 
requests even though I would like noth- 
ing better than to give positive responses. 
The Academy for Educational Develop- 
ment recently released 148 ways for 
meeting the financial pinch in colleges. 
More recently the' Academy suggested 
319 ways. The necessity for scrutiny, 
however, does not allow for poor use of 
information, for hasty conclusions, nor 
for the unacademic privilege to draw an 
analogy between a small college and a 
small bus company or a large university. 

Although I disagree with much of the 
material in the article, my biggest disap- 
pointment is in its failure to touch hardly 
at all the two biggest items on which the 
future of LVC depends. It is so similar to 
so many little things which influence the 
educational process in trifling amounts 
while failing to give the reader any grasp 
of the basis problems. 

The future of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege (and almost every other private 
college) is more dependent on two items 
than on any other fifty-two items of 
which I can think. I can mention them 
in only the briefest way. 

First is our ability to develop a fresh 
and exciting approach to learning free 
from the degenerating influences of cred- 
its, grades, cramming and cheating. Al- 
though this development must give us 
freshness and excitement, it must also 
give us relevancy without loss of histori- 
cal perspective, flexibility without aca- 
demic flabbiness, and a high level of 
intellectual performance by both faculty 
and students.* The development of this 
approach will be no easy task, but I pre- 
dict that such an approach will bring 
high quality students for a long, long 

The second item On which hangs our 
future is not so directly under our 
control. Public policy on higher educa- 
tion as established by state and federal 
governments will strongly determine our 
quality of life. Too many political leaders 
are tinkering with laws on education as 

*Much of this statement comes from 
a report of one of our academic depart- 

if they were unaware or unconcerned 
that 1972 is quite different from 1932. 
If something sensible is to come from 
much of what is now ridiculous, some 
new policies are to come and to come 
very soon. Each of us has a responsibility 
to explore this need, to help determine 
the best new public policy and its 
influence on LVC, and to make the 
public and the politicians aware of what 
it is. 

These two items will determine much 
of the future of Lebanon Valley. One is 
in our hands completely. The other 
must be shared by our entire society. 
I shall not neglect any of the many small 
items which must be considered, but for 
our future's sake let us not shy from 
tackling the big ones. 


by Ben Neideigh 

I predict that within a year it will 
be safe to listen to A.M. radio without 
fear of mental pollution. Times are 
changing, and for the first time since 
1968 there is consistently good music 
on A.M. radio. I remember 1968 well... 

That was the year my rock music 
consciousness matured. Sure, I knew 
about the Beatles, the Stones, the Beach 
Boys, and the bigger groups of the 
pre-1968 era. But all of the music was 
basically the same crude riffs that had 
marked rock & roll since its inception. 
Most of it bored me. I bought the re- 
cords (45 's) that struck me as being 
the most unique. . .and consequently 
came up with a lot of Freddie and the 
Dreamers, a smattering of Roger Mil- 
ler, "Henry VIII" by Herman's Her- 
mits, Napoleon XIV, and Dino, Desi 
and Billy. As you can see, my musical 
tastes were slightly to the left of mid- 
dle-of-the-road bopperism. After their 
first four super hits, the Beatles were 
no fun any more. If anything they were 
to me too famous, too big to be hu- 
manly accessable. I never really liked 
the Stones, and until "California Girls" 
came out I professed no great love for 
the Beach Boys. I remember being 
quietly gratified when the Four Sea- 
sons' "Rag Doll" nudged aside "I Get 
Around" (perhaps the ultimate surfer/ 
motorhead song). There was something 
very redundant about endless repeti- 
tions of I-IV-V chord progressions 
(sometimes thinly disguised by washes 
of Mantovani-esque orchestration) to 
sped-up or slowed-down versions of the

same 4/4 meter signature. 

1967 signaled the beginning of the 
Great Awakening. I read the review of 
Sgt. Pepper in Newsweek and prompt- 
ly squandered two week's allowance to 
buy it. At last my first album! My 
tastes in music became in a flash Eng- 
lish Psychedelic. My second album was 
Satanic Majesties by the Stones, my 
third, The Who Sell Out, my fourth, 
Spanky and Our Gang (I thought they 
sounded English). I bought polka-dot- 
tedshirts on sight and sprouted Beatle 
bangs that had been in hiding since 
1965. 1 listened to the radio constantly; 
subconsciously I think I knew what was 
coming. First came "Strawberry 
Fields", then Magical Mystery Tour, 

and then 

SHAZAM! ! ! ! 1968! !',!!! 
All of this great music sprung up on 
the airwaves of WLAN as if by magic. 
Jefferson Airplane, "Kentucky Woman" 
by Deep Purple, "Lady Madonna", 
"Bluebird" by Buffalo Springfield, The 
Lovin' Spoonful, Mary Hopkin, "Mac- 
Arthur Park", late Beach Boys , The 
Nazz (very important), "Hey Jude". 
Goin' Up the Country" by Canned 
Heat and "Fire" by Arthur Brown. 
Not to mention "Street Fighting Man" 
or "Sunshine of Your Love". All this 
and much, much more and the hits 
just kept on coming! ! ! Superb musi- 
cianship (Life said so and so did Leon- 
ard Bernstein), a great beat, cosmic 
awareness, pianos and organs, fuzz 
boxes, wah-wah pedals! Creedence 
Clearwater came out! ! ! ! The Bee 
Gees became very big! ! ! 
So did the Doors. 

It took me a year to be stunned 
by "Light My Fire" (a 1967 release) 
but when it hit I completely flipped 
out. I first heard the long version of 
"LMF" in January 1968. By May I 
was preaching the Gospel according to 
Ray Manzarek (his organ playing was 
my chief source of Nirvana back then); 
by June I was organist and chief mu- 
sical geniur (by virtue of six years of 
private piano and theory and a good 
ear) of Lititz'es own Marshmallow 
Steamshovel (later known as the Le- 
mon Meringue Pillbox Band, the Ma- 
jestic Busstop, Crystal Liza, The Clip- 
per Ship, and finally Co. Inc.) and do- 
ing a perfect rendition of "Light My 
Fire" to the amazement of girls who 
previously refused to date me. By Sept- 
ember I could play the contents of The 
Doors, Strange Days, and Waiting for 
the Sun in my sleep if propped up at 
the console of my Farfisa Mini-Com- 
pact. I had also assimilated "In-a-Gadda 
da-Vida" and Vanilla Fudge by then 
and until November 1969 I was ye 
compleate rocke organiste (November 
1969 being the approximate date of 
the dissolution of the Hard Life of Ca- 
tawba College, my last band; the break- 
up came when half of the band, includ- 
ing myself, refused to play Stevie Won- 
der's "For Once in My Life" and the 
other half refused to sit through yet 
another of my 15-minute keyboard ex- 
cursions during "Light My Fire", which 
much to my horror they attempted to 
score for brass) and ego champ of 
Central Pa. 

All of this happened because the 
great music on the radio convinced me 
of my destiny as the next Pop Idol 
(a dream I still cling to when I get 
lousy grades in English). By the end of 
1968, with the radio merrily tootling 
out "Revolution" and the Beatles' white 
album vying with Borman, Lovell, and 
Anders for my attention, my only 
question was "Where do we go from 
here?" The answer for A.M. radio was 
the Ohio Express, Bobby Sherman, 
the 1910 Fruitgum Co., Gary Puckett, 
etc., etc., ad nauseum. So I bought al- 
bums. And more albums. And still more 
albums. I became acquainted with such 
greats as the Nice; Frand Zappa and the 
Mothers; Poco; Pink Floyd; the Band; 

Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young; Pro- 
cul Harem and many, many others, 
spent a lot of money, and lamented 
the loss of A.M. radio to the pre-pub- 
escent set. 

Now, though, A.M. seems to becomir 
up. Names like Paul Simon, Comman- 
der Cody, Yes, Neil Young, Isaac Hayes, 
Malo, and Elton John currently pepper 
the Straline Survey, injecting new life 
into the A.M. playlist. Soon to join 
the lists is a song called "I Saw the 
Light" by an artist called Todd Rund- 
gren. Todd Rundgren will prove to be 
the messiah of A.M. radio and make 
stations like WMMR and WPLJ (with 
their extraneous "hipper than thou" 
politics and pseudo-esoteric verbal dri- 
vel obsolete. 

Todd is 23, a native of Philadelphia, 
former head of Nazz, writer of that 
group's very nice material (including 
the immortal "Hellow It's Me"), pre- 
sently a solo artist sometimes referred 
to as "Runt", an expert sound engineer 
and producer (with Stage Fright and 
Bandfinger's latest to his credit, among 
others), the self-acclaimed (and alto- 
gether appropriate)best guitarist in the 
U.S. and an adequate performer on 
just about any other instrument you 
can name. He has released in all six 
albums of his music (three with Nazz, 
three solo). His newest album is entitled 
Someth ing/A ny thing? ( B e arsvill e /War- 
ner Bros. 2BX 2066). It is a double set 
of the best music of its type available 
here today, rivaled only by some of 
Brian Wilson's songs. I can't really 
review this album because I find it 
impossible to be objective about it. A 
few vital facts, though: there are 23 
cuts on the album, the longest just 
under six minutes. Thus the individual 
statements of each song are musically 
and lyrically concise and precise. Pre- 
cision, in fact, is one of the major 
assets of this album. The musicianship 
is very good, and very tight. On three 
sides Todd plays and sings everything. 
Period. He does basically what McCart- 
ney tried to do on his first solo album, 
only better. His guitar work is flawless, 
and although he is not an expert on 
each instrument, he is competent on 
all of them and uses them to form a 
tight, seamless ensemble sound, much 
like that found on most good singles. 
His ideas are fresh, even in his ballads; 
he manages to sound tender and youth- 
ful without being mushy and immature. 
Nowhere on the album, including the 
fourth-side "jam", is there a wasted 
note. What soloing there is is done 
tastefully, accurately, and profession- 
ally. Todd has taken the good points 
of singles (their compactness and con- 
ciseness) and the good points of al- 
bums (the generally superior musician- 
ship), removed the extraneous and the 
banal from both sources (stupid lyrics, 
oversentimentality, over-blown solos), 
and given us, on this album, 1968 all 
over again. Bless him. Every song could 
and should be a hit single. I'm sure 
some will.

spastics, and people with tics. 

The Institute also has machines 
which can measure brain waves of dif- 
ferent types. The Alpha wave, which 
produces relaxation and serenity, is far 
more infrequent than the Beta wave. 
People can be trained to produce more 
Alpha waves (If every time a subject's 
brain produces an Alpha wave he is 
shown a blue light, he can learn how to 
control them, creating an Alpha state 
for himself). There is a curious correla- 
tion between this state and that of the 

Bodily controls which usually would 
take years and years to develop may be 
obtainable in days or hours of concen- 
tration. A sort of graduation exercise 
for a yogi is the test in which he sits 
naked on a cold rock, and is covered 
with cold wet sheets. He drys these 
sheets off by raising his own body tem- 
perature. Almost everyone has heard of 
people walking on hot coals. These are 
not tricks, but real: they have learned 
to control the body's heat. Dr. Houston 
stressed that it is time Science stops 
calling these things impossible and 
starts to investigate how they happen. 

The Institute is also trying to find 
ways that people can tune in on and 
use different states of consciousness. 
For instance, a student can get himself 
into a hypo-alert state by means of a 
series of exercises in breathing, running 
in place, panting, and so on. 

- Research is also being done on the 
two kinds of trance states -deep relax- 
ation and receptivity. In an experiment 
at the University of Tulsa students put 
into this trance of heightened concen- 
tration learned in 30 minutes what 
would normally take hours to assimi- 
late. This is the idea of "subjective 
time." If a subject can think of 5 min- 
utes of time as 1 hour of clock time, 
he can do a problem in 5 minutes which 
would normally take him an hour. For 
instance, a songwriter was told he would 
have 2 minutes for 2 hours of clock 
time, and that he was to imagine him- 
self in a theatre listening to songs no 
one has ever heard before (of course, 
his own mind is making up these songs). 
After the two minutes it is likely he 
will be able to hum several new tunes 
that he heard during those "two hours." 

Although children start out with the 
ability to visualize, they lose this ability 
since verbalization and concept forma- 
tion are stressed as more important. 
However, there is a correlation between 
high level creativity and an ability to 
visualize. Einstein, who was considered 
mentally inferior for much of his 
schooling, was an imagizer. He pictured 
his formulas in his mind. 

Dr. Houston asks: "Why accept 
needless limitations just because that is 
what our image of man is?" She en- 
visualizes a state where men experience 
a loss of personality, becoming a part 
of what is, becoming one with the stars, 
the land, the mountains. This has been 
commonly known as mysticism, attain- 
able only to a few. It may become poss- 
ible through this research to make this 
state attainable to many. 

In conclusion, Dr. Houston re- 
marked that we spend billions on the 
space program, all for the gain of two 
footsteps on the moon, when what we 
need is inner-space research. She says 
to us: "Put the first man on earth!"

Sports in Brief

On the Lebanon Valley intramural 
scene, history seems about to repeat it- 
self one more time, as Kalo and Philo 
again battle it out for the supremacy 
trophy. With the year nearly over, Kalo 
holds a slim lead over both Philo and the 
Residents, and most unbiased observers 
expect Kalo to emerge victorious, as 
usual. . . The recently completed volley- 
ball season may have been the turning 
point, as the two fiats, both undefeated, 
met head-on early last week. Philo won 
an easy 15-4 victory in the first game 
and jumped off to a 4-0 lead in the 
second, but Kalo stormed back to take 
that game 15-9 and the hard-fought rub- 
ber match, 15-12. . .However, Philo 
triumphed in the swimming competition

ball could still give Philo the title, but 
don't count on it. As the brothers of 
Kalo will testify, winning does become 


Meanwhile, on the inter-collegiate 
front, this continues to be an unusually 
successful year for most LVC teams. The 
lacrosse squad, after dropping a heart- 
breaking decision to F & M, bounced 
back to rout Kutztown, Muhlenberg, and 
Haverford, scoring 37 goals in that span 
while yielding only 6. Offensively, Jeff 
Rowe leads the Dutchmen with 18 tal- 
lies, followed by Ken Gilberg with 12 
and Gary Hunter with 8. 

At the same time, the golf team has 
won its last thirteen matches, following 
opening defeats at the hands of Albright 
and Moravian. However, things never 
seem to get monotonous, as the team 
followed a ridiculously easy triump over 
Ursinus and Johns Hopkins by edging 
Western Maryland by one stroke and 
Delaware Valley by two in another tri- 
angular match. Jerry Frey, who has been 
either medalist or runner-up in every 
match so far this season, and Chet Mos- 
teller have been the most consistent links- 

As of this writing, the track team is 
still attempting to gain its first win of 
the season, despite fine performances by 
John Halbleib, Rick Zingg, Frank Ruther- 
ford among others. Last week the team 
came within 8 points of defeating F & M 
even though the team members managed 
only one first in field events. The biggest 
surprise of the season was the pet' 
formance of Francis (Obai) Kabia the 
previous week against Delaware Valley 
Participating in his first meet, Obai took 
a first in the triple jump and seconds in

A NNVILLE, PA.-The editor of La Vie for the 1972-73 college year 
•jl be James Katzaman, a Sophomore Political Science major from 
Wornelsdorf, Pa. The announcement was made by the present editor, 
Diane Wilkins, subject to conformation by the Student Council. 

jini has been involved in newspaper work as a reporter since the be- 
ginning of his Freshman year. Besides the reporting of straight news, he 
has also written feature and sports articles. Jim has recently taken over 
^ position of managing editor. Active in student affairs, he is a mem- 
ber of APO, the Building Committee, and has recently co-ordinated the 
All-Night Film Festival. 

"I wish Jim success next year," said the outgoing editor. "The editor- 
ship takes a lot of work and even more time, but at the same time, it 
can be very rewarding. Working without the benefit of any type of course 
in journalism makes the task twice as difficult. The key to a successful 
campus newspaper is student support. Next year La Vie needs student 
participation in all areas especially writing and typing." 

The position of Business Manager for next year will be filled by John 
Bittner, a Junior Political Science major. John has been responsible for 
all advertising for the past two years. Predictably, his interests in- 
clude activities in the business field such as the Investment Club.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, May 18, 1972 


by Ruth Rehrig 

In his address given in the May 2 Cha- 
pel-Convocation program, President Fred- 
erick P. Sample explored the topic, "A 
New Curriculum for Lebanon Valley - 
1975, 1980, 1985?" 

Dr. Sample's initial assertion was that 
"credits, grades, averages, and the like 
are not the goals we should pursue." The 
initiation of a new curricular approach 

Social & Cultural . . ♦ 

ANNVILLE, PA.-On Thursday, May 11, 1972, the Second Annual 
Spring Arts Festival started off with a concert by Dave and Darius Bru- 
beck. During the intermission, the Festival was officially opened by 
Coordinator Don Frantz who introduced Governor Milton Shapp. Calling 
on the need for the greater development of the Arts, Governor Shapp 
attacked some members of the state legislature who have been trying 
to cut the proposed budget expenditures for the Arts. The Governor 
wished the Festival every success and stated he was glad to see state 
backing go to events of this nature. (LVC'S Spring Arts Festival is 
jointly supported by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 
Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts in Wash- 
ington D. C. 

After praising Mr. Brubeck's music, the Governor mentioned that he

vise by considering the strengths and 
weaknesses of the student and the educa- 
tional goals. 

In this way, the student would be 
gaining knowledge, not credits towards 
graduation. Some might take only three 
years to complete this, others may take 
five. Mastery of a discipline can never 
be expressed in grades. 

2) the entire faculty will be asked to 
define and describe in detail the experi- 
ence of general education. What degree 
of awareness should the student have in 
this area? The Dean of the College will 
have some kind of system to determine 
the reaching of this goal. 

3) There should be a set of common 
experiences for all students, which will 

be determined and reviewed by the facul- 
ty and students. These experiences will 
build a foundation for study in any field. 
Enjoyable and guided by scholars, some 
of these experiences may include field 
trips and interdisciplinary study. 

Having met all three expectations, 
the student will qualify for a degree at the 

President Sample challenges, "I am 
ready to explore more and more deeply. 
Are you?" A curriculum change such as 
this would mean more work for everyone. 

In conclusion Dr. Sample stressed that 
such a new approach would be difficult 
to begin, and "unless education is more 
important than credits, it is not worth

which would change the present system 
takes courage, no matter how sound and 
sensible the plan may be. And yet the 
innovative suggestions of educators such 
as Dewey, Hall, and Froebel have not 
destroyed any institutions, but provided 
needed change and reform. 

Grades, credits, and grade point aver- 
ages were originally meant to function 
as a guideline and structure. But unfor- 
tunately they have become our most im- 
portant topic of conversation, and be- 
come both the means and the ends. 
Society uses it as an employment service, 
and the graduate schools use it as an en- 
trance exam. The system is being used 
for the wrong reasons. 

Dr. Sample sincerely believes that Leb- 
anon Valley College is ready to make a 
change, and that we have the faculty and 
students to do it. He is confident that 
this step would lead other colleges to 

The objectives and goals were expres- 
sed in three parts: 

1 ) Let each major department of the 
college describe and define in detail what 
each student must master before being 
granted a degree in that major. The stu- 
dents must be informed of what they 
need to reach these expectations, and 
what the alternatives are in reaching these 
goals. No "credit" system is used. The 
advisors don't advise in credits, but ad- 

On June 30, D. Clark Carmean, who 
has been involved in almost every facet 
of the life of Lebanon Valley College for 
nearly 40 years, will retire from his post 
as director of admissions. 

President Sample has indicated that 
Carmean will remain in the Office of Ad- 
missions in an advisory capacity until 
December 30, 1972, and that he will be 
retained by the College as a consultant 
from time to time. 

A native of Marysville, Ohio, Carmean 
received the bachelor or arts degree in 
business administration and music from 
Ohio Wesley an and the master of arts de- 
gree in music education from Teachers 
College of Columbia University. 

He came to LVC in 1933 to serve as 
an instructor in violin. Two years later he 
and his wife, Edna, moved into the Men's 
Dorm, where they lived and served as 
counselors until 1940. 

In the succeeding years Carmean 's 
various positions included tenures as dean 
of men (1935-1940), director of summer 
sessions (1943-1949), and director of 
auxiliary schools (1950-1953). He has 
served as director of admissions since 
1949, including duties as financial aid 
officer from 1958-1964. In addition, he 
has held the rank of professor of music. 

With over 20 years experience in the 
admissions field, Carmean is one of the 
best-known admissions men in the state. 
He is a past president of the Keystone 
Personnel and Guidance Association, and 
he has served on national committees of 
the Association of College Admissions 

The first full-time professional hired 
for admissions work at LVC he was re- 

sponsible for setting the admissions stan- 
dards and procedures that still exist to- 
day. With the exception of the invaluable 
volunteer help he received from Mrs. 
Carmean, his was totally a one-man opera- 
tion until an assistant director was hired 
in 1964. 

Scores of LVC students have come to 
know the Carmeans through their active 
participation in student activities as 
willing chaperones, advisors to campus 
clubs, and as host for student cookouts 
at their farm home. 

Mr. Carmean also held a number of 
community, professional, and fraternal 
affiliations. During World War II he served 
as Lebanon County disaster chairman and 
chairman of the LVC blood bank com- 
mittee, and from 1946 to 1958 he was a 
member of the Annville school board. 

He is a former member of the Amer- 
ican Council on Education, National Ed- 
ucation Association, Pennsylvania Mu- 
sic Educators Association, Music Educa- 
tors National Conference, and former lo- 
cal treasurer of the American Association 
of University Professors. In addition he is 
a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon national 
social fraternity, and a life-long mem- 
ber of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music 

In announcing Carmean's retirement, 
Dr. Sample stated that "Lebanon Valley 
College is indeed indebted to Mr. Clark 
Carmean for his many outstanding years 
of competent and loyal service to the 
institution. His record of achievement 
speaks for itself and can be equalled only 
by a very few persons in the history of 
the College." 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, May 18, 197 2 

It's All Over Now 

This is the last issue of La Vie for the 1971-72 college year, (sigh of 
relief) I would like to speak in the first person about some of the frus- 
trations and the rewards of my last two years as editor. Let's start with 
the frustrations. The biggest has got to be when I look at the finished pro- 
duct. Due to lack of time, experience or talent, there have only been 
two or three issues with which I have been satisfied. 

A sore point has been the attitude of a large number of the faculty. 
If experiences in college are for learning, then the newspaper is no ex- 
ception. Neither La Vie nor any of the staff is trying to "stab anyone in 
the back." The feeling of suspicion may be a legacy from the past, but it 
shows that many of the faculty are immature and self-centered. The 
degree of departmental "jealousy" on a campus this size is ridiculous. 

Dealing with the teaching aspect, I have never met so many students, 
including English majors, with so little confidence in their writing 
ability -usually with good reason. I think the mechanical proficiency 
in handling the medium has been achieved, but if I had one goal it would 
be to improve the literary style. I urge the English Department to con- 
sider the addition of a course in journalism. Plus the major editors should 
get some kind of credit relief for their work. 

Perhaps the events which most disturb me are those connected with 
one word-Bureaucracy. It was perhaps the shock of being transported 
from the obscurity of second floor Carnegie to the College Center. Other 
years La Vie may not have been helped by the administration, but we 
were safely forgotten. Not to mislead, the move to the center was 
an improvement. I can now pound on the adjoining wall when I want 
photographs and distribution is now no difficulty. What destroys my 
sanity are forms in triplicate, proper channels, innane rules, and one 
person having the only key. Things have definitely gotten better since 
the beginning of the year; so next year well just have to hope for further 

Next point: secrecy. This year we have had seemingly millions of sur- 
veys and committees. Have you heard any results? Neither have I. The 
Middle Atlantic evaluation— very secret. The faculty evaluation— one 
question will be published when all the key punching is completed. 
As long as one question is being made available, the whole survey should, 
along with the name of those faculty members who refused to partici- 
pate. This would end much of the non-official speculation. Then there 
is the Committee for Review of Student Government. Dr. Kissinger 
could take lessons on secret meetings from them. Obviously, premature 
disclosure would have been harmful, but the final meeting has been 
held. The decision was made at that last meeting not to make the report 
available to La Vie. The rationale, as I understand it, is that no one has 
approved it. I hope they make the proposal known before the vote is 
taken. Actually, I hope the report will be made public by the time this 
is published. I am regretful that the Committee did not feel the college 
newspaper was the proper forum. Another regret is that I have been too 
complacent in publishing only what people allowed to be printed. If I 
had another year, I would do more digging. 

Now for the good points. As much as discussing anything with Presi- 
dent Sample can be a frustrating experience, I appreciate his defense 
of freedom for the college press. I have received a few "suggestions" 
passed down the "proper channels" and sometimes in person, but not 
any real pressure— and for this I thank Dr. Sample. 

I would like to say a few words about the faculty who are not in- 
cluded in those mentioned above. I thank those who have taken the time 
to be interested in La Vie. Special mention should be made of Dr. Tom 
and Dr. Bemesderfer for their notices of events in their departments. 

Finally a note of very great thanks to Mr. Paul Pickard. It is a change 
for La Vie to have an advisor who is interested in and understands many 
of the problems involved with a campus newspaper. 

SPECIAL NOTE-Would the person or persons who took the Macbeth 
posters from the Center please return them to the La Vie office. We 
had reserved them for our room decor. So when you are packing for 
home, just drop the posters under the door. Also the rotten person who 
stole the picture of Alice Cooper off the editor's desk, give it back!

To the Editor: 

In the May 4th issue of La Vie, a 
number of concerned students expressed 
their dissatisfaction with certain condi- 
tions existing in the dining hall. However,t 
all their complaints were not valid. My 
suggestion for the undernourished stu- 
dents is to do some research before taking 
a crack at a particular person or the 
dining hall. Also most students are ig- 
norant about their right to take their 
complaints to the Student Council. Don't 
complain about student government be- 
cause you are on your asses bitching and 
not taking advantage of your government. 

1. If you want more orange juice or 
a substitute other than peanut-butter 
and jelly, cottage cheese, and salads, go 
and see George Landis. He will gladly 
give you any substitute that is available. 

2. The policy regarding the taking out 
of ice from the dining hall is not Mr. 
Landis', but rather an administrative 

3. Students with 12:00 classes are 
allowed to eat early. Just inform the 
head waiter and permission will be grant- 

4. Those who wish a special menu for 
religious or dietary reasons should ask 
Mr. Landis for a substitute. Presently a 
number of students are on special diets 
with the cooperation of the cooking 

5. As far as having all four lines 
open, this at times is impossible for a 
lack of student workers and simply there 
are not enough students as a particular 
meal to warrant the opening of four 

6. Finally, I have worked in the cafe- 
teria for four years and have seen a re- 
markable change for the better since the 
days of Mother Millard. The food has im- 
proved, working conditions have im- 
proved, and the cooperation of Mr. Lan- 
dis and his staff has been outstanding. I 
realize that there are some valid com- 
plaints about certain dishes and meal 

times, etc. However if you do have a 
complaint, see Mr. Landis or bring your 
problem to Student Council. 

Howie Chwatt 
At least one student known to us has 
taken complaints to Student Council. 
At the r i s k of making an uninformed 
statement, we fear the suggestions pro- 
posed went no further. In defense of 
those who gave their opinions, they were 
asked by a reporter. We are, however, 
glad that Howie has cleared up many 
fairly common misunderstandings, -ed. 

To the Editor: 

Amidst the comments, criticisms, and 
controversies that are discussed in this 
informative paper, rarely does one read 
about the commendation that instructors 
might have for their students. It is ap- 
propriate, therefore, to send plaudits and 
praise to the students of the Department 
of Sociology who demonstrated such in- 
genuity, industriousness and inspiration 
in the formulation and implementation 
of the Sociology Symposium for High 
School Students which was held on our 
campus recently. 

Hearty congratulations for a job well 
done. I am proud of you.

Camelot has long been (along with 
pte Music Man) my favorite musical com 
gjy It is everything a good musical com- 
e dy should be. It has a simple yet pow- 
erful story, great potential for showman- 
ship and flash, memorable songs (in this 
case the titanic "If Ever I Would Leave 
You") an< * enou Sh schmaltz to leave an 
udience of stone dewey-eyed and trans- 
fixed. It needs only careful direction and 
tjie full attention of the actors to make 
it a success. Wig and Buckle's production 
f Camelot had both, and it was most as- 
suredly a success, even better than Man 
f La Mancha. It was a tremendous 
jhow combining the considerable talents 
f two relatively "unknown" Valley 
thespians, a deft hand at direction who 
enabled the rambling, grandiose play to 
be acted out on the College Center's 
highly inadequate stage facilities, and one 
of the most unique sets that has ever ap- 
peared here for use in a dramatic pre- 
sentation. Everything meshed, and the 
result was a performance that was as near 
perfect as I surmise is possible until 
the new stage in the Fine Arts Building 

and the naturality of the crowd situated 
on various levels of the stage around 
Guenevere, that scene's central character. 
The tossing of flowers into the audience 
was a nice touch, if somewhat of a gim- 
mick. Similarly, the processions milling 
up and down the left aisle in the first act 
were a bit gimmicky (this is done a mite 
too often lately) but they accentuated 
the versatility of the set quite well and 
did lend an air of that holiest of holies, 
audience participation, to the events oc- 
curring on stage. 

All in all, though, for this particular 
show, any lesser set than the one Bob de- 
signed for this presentation would have 
been woefully inadequate. It worked due 
to the extreme talent apparent in its con- 
ception and execution and due also to the 
very good direction of Stephen Spiese. 
Moving those masses of supporting char- 
acters in and out and over the set must 
have presented a rather great challenge, 
and in keeping with the over-all quality 
of the presentation this challenge was 
met with considerable talent and effort 
on Steve's part. This is singularly appro- 
priate since this is Steve's last produc- 
tion as a Valley Student. His abilities so 
graphically demonstrated onstage this 
year will doubtless be sorely missed. He 
enabled Camelot to appear and flourish 
on the tiny College Center stage despite 
the obvious inflexibility of a fixed set. 
The show deserves more than a fixed set; 
it cries out for lavish scenery. Unfor- 
tunately the limited fly space of the Cen- 
ter theatre prevents the use of such elab- 
ate stage devices and as a result a fixed 
set was required. All I can say is that 
somehow, in spite of the limitations of 
such a set design, Bob and Steve made it 
work. That should suffice as testimony 
to their collective facilities in theatre art. 

The acting in Camelot was every bit 
as excellent as the technical aspects of the 
play. Each member of the cast seemed to

able when it is built. That assumption is, 
a s most of you know by now, a bit un- 
realistic ... but more on that later. 

The superb set design is once again the 
result of Bob Johnston's talents and ten- 
der loving care. I wasn't sure the garish 
pain t job it sported would add to the 
eff ect of the performance at first, but it

rise to the occasion and give their great- 
est effort Sunday afternoon. There were 
several veterans of L.V.C. dramatic pro- 
ductions in key roles. Ed Donnelly por- 
trayed Pellinore in the exhuberant comic 
style which he so vividly displayed in The 
Winter's Tale, but seemed to be in better 
control of his character this time, and not 
so given to strain for his humor. The char- 
acter of Pellinore is so outrageously hu- 
morous that careful attention to direc- 
tion and a sense of comic projection are 
the only true requisites needed to do the 
part adequately. Ed added his own dis- 
tinct touches to the characterization,

however, and came up with a Pellinore 
that was perhaps even more of a bungler 
than the character is intended to be. He 
was undeniably funny, however, and hu- 
mor is the character's prime function in 
the pfay; he seems to serve no other pur- 
pose. Bob Moul was very good as Mor- 
dred. He lent a naughtyness to the part 
that tended to relieve the cumbrous 
shade of evil built into the character and 
his intent. He was especially good in the 
humorous Morgan LeFey sequence and in 
the "Fie on Goodness" segment. Of the 
veterans, though, Ric Bowen as Lancelot 
seemed to be the best. His vocalizing ex- 
uded the strength and confidence of his 
character and his firm, reserved delivery 
of his lines seemed to underscore his rel- 
ationship to Lancelot; he seemed to be- 
come Lancelot, in fact. All in all, his 
was a solid believable performance. 
Neophytes Excel 

The best acting was turned in by the 
two neophytes of the program, however. 
Ruth Wilson in her first major role por- 
trayed a very intriguing Guenevere, a 
very feminine and ultimately quite hu- 
man Guenevere. Her performance in the 
"Lusty Month of May" scene displayed 
most vividly her abilities as an actress, es- 
pecially in the sly little touches she added 
to her already naughty little song. Most 
impressive. Her long suit is her singing 
voice, however. It is simply gorgeous. It 
projected well in all of her songs with a 
warmth that reinforced the human ele- 
ments of Guenevere, the elements that 
reduce her from a queen to little more 
than a lovestruck schoolgirl torn between 
potential steadies. Her voice truly com- 
plemented her character. Arthur is the 
star of the show, however, and so it was 
that freshman Richard Schneider stole 
the show as Arthur. This was Rich's 
first major role at Valley (following a sup- 
porting role in Man of La Mancha) in a 
stage production, but his talents have al- 
ready been felt on campus. Most know 
Rich as the leader of the Grease Band, 
L.V.C.'s entry into the current fad of 
ersatz nostalgia and purveyors of some 
of the best imitation '50's rock in recent 
memory. Rich seemed to make the trans- 
formation from King of Grease to King 
Arthur rather easily. He was at ease on 
stage; he exuded a natural flair for his 
special ability that is the mark of true 
talent. His shy mugging added humanity 
to Arthur the Legend, creating a vision 
of a boy -just-turned-man-just-turned-King 
caught in the confusion of power, alone 
with only his idea against the powers of 
corruption. Sounds a bit strong, doesn't 
it? But Camelot needs this exaggerated 
emphasis on the black-and-white of it 
all to work, and Rich, by his acting, gave 
the play this emphasis. His singing was 
adequate, fitting the loose, conversation- 
al tone of his characterization of Arthur 
very well. His long suit, though, is his 
acting. He's quite good. And he has three 
more years to mature his abilities even 
further. I wish him well. 

Now for the fly in the ointment. I 
didn't think much of the orchestra. Not 
that the whole unit was bad, but the 
horn section was positively horrendous. 
I should think that at a school which 
prides itself in an excellent music depart- 
ment could come up with some truly 
proficient horn players. I was rather ir- 
ritated by all the cracked trumpet notes 
I heard Sunday afternoon. Brass plays 
such an important role in the music of 
Camelot that I feel the music deserves 
brass players who will do it justice. The 
orchestra on a whole needed practice 
badly. The horns needed it worse. 

All in all, though, I feel Camelot was 
an unqualified success. I consider it the 
best production I have seen onstage at 
Valley this year; an appropriate way to 
end the year, what? I enjoyed Camelot 
immensely, as did the rest of the people 
who attended any of the showings. I am 
sure that of Camelot, the L.V.C. students 
had more to say about it than simply 
"It was good for Lerner and Lowe." To 
Wig and Buckle, my deepest appreciation 
and my thanks.

On Friday night, April 21, the Grease 
Band performed at Elizabethtown Col- 
lege as one of four musical groups. The 
act that night was not one of their best. 
Once again the group met face-to-face 
with their old nemesis - the sound sys- 
tem. As you may recall, while they put 
on a tremendous show prior to the 
Dance Marathon, one of the problems 
they encountered involved the inability 
to hear some of their backup men. There 
were also minor problems when some of 
the singers did not perform close enough 
to the mikes so as to be heard by the au- 
dience. But these incidents detracted 
very little from their overall performance. 

At E-town the story was different. 
The problems that were trivial before 
served to be the Greasers' undoing. The 
sound system again challenged them as 
an enemy to be contended with. 

But there were psychological factors 
as well contributing to the affair. All this 
plus the passivity of the audience rein- 
forced the atmosphere of hopelessness 
surrounding the Greaser part of the con- 

Who was to blame? Were the Greasers 
at fault? Did others do them in? Was the 
evening destined to be less than a success 
from the very start? 

To answer these and other questions, 
one should look at the entire picture: 
the events leading up to the concert, the 
concert itself, and its aftermath. It is a 
drama of both suspense and disapoint- 

The Greasers were looking forward to 
going to E-town. It was to be a trium- 
phant command performance. They had 
appeared there several months earlier 
and were very well received. It was that 
first concert which served as a basis for 
their return invitation. 

The day started out well enough. 
Everyone was optimistic on the concert's 
outcome. By that night they would once 
again be the heroes of E-town. Nothing 
they saw would or could go wrong. The 
plans they made were simple: report to 
the E-town gym by 5:30 to set up and 
test the equipment (they would use Bar- 
naby Plum's sound system), start playing 
as soon as Barnaby Plum finished their 
part of the concert, pack up and come 
back home to LVC. 

They had left Valley a little late that 
night and arrived at E-town at 5:45. Sur- 
prisingly enough they were still the first 
group to arrive. In fact, for about an 
hour thereafter they still had the whole 
gym to themselves. Finally a person 
trickled in, then another, and yet anoth- 
er. Big City Music Band had arrived. 

But this did not solve the predica- 
ment of the Greasers. How could they fi- 
nally get to test a sound system ahead of 
time when Barnaby Plum, the group with 
the system, had not yet arrived? 

Now other complications came to 
light. A necessary part of the Greaser act 
is the piano accompaniment. Thinking 
that somewhere close to the gym E-town 
would have a piano, none was brought 
with them. But when they arrived they 
learned that no piano was to be found. 
They decided to ask Barnaby Plum for 
their piano, but again, Barnaby Plum was 
nowhere to be found. In desperation, 
one of the Greasers, Mark Sttzler, was 
sent to Lebanon to bring back Wayne 
Fox's piano. 

Time was growing short. The concert 
was scheduled to begin at 8:45. By 8:00 
Barnaby Plum had still not arrived. At 
8:30 there was still no sign of them. 
Worse yet, Sitzler had not returned with 
the piano. 8:45 - where was Barnaby 
Plum? Where was Sitzler? 

In the interim, arrangements were 
made to use Big City's sound system. 

Since Barnaby Plum had not arrived, the 
Greasers were told by their booking a- 
gent that instead of occupying the se- 
cond spot, they would be the first to 
play. They were to go on as soon as they 
were ready. 

Quickly the instruments were checked 
out and the grease went on. Now the 
worry was not so much "Where is Barna- 
by Plum?" as it was "Where is Sitzler?" 

At 9:00 Barnaby Plum arrived saying 
that an accident on the turnpike caused 
their delay. But this was of no conse- 
quence now. They were still too late to 
take over for the Greasers in the No.l 
spot. Now, at frequent intervals, you 
could hear one of the members of the 
group call out, "Where is Sitzler?" 

But the show had to go on. At 9:15 
the Greasers slid onto the stage to face 
the audience. It was not a hostile house 
that greeted them, but niether was it 
overly receptive. To begin with, it was 
not a large audience and they had been 
waiting a half hour for the show to begin. 
Now they were getting restless. It was in 
this atmosphere - mental anguish over 
using a sound system that was too loud 
and untested, facing a small, restless au- 
dience, and "Where is Sitzler?" - it was ini 
that kind of atmosphere that they pre- 
sented their concert. 

Rich Schneider set the tone of the 
evening when he slauntered on stage with 
the rest of the group. He went up to the 
mike and said, "YouH have to excuse us. 
One of the members of the group hasn't 
shown up yet so well try to do without 
him for awhile. Thanks." 

They started with their rendition of 
"Rockin' Robin". But the rest of the 
group just could not seem to get with it. 
Their movements seemed stiff through- 
out. When the song was finally over, the 
audience gave appreciative applause but 
nothing of overwhelming proportions. 
The next few numbers were more of the 
same. "Teen Angel" caught on at spots 
but as soon as the crowd displayed any 
interest at all, they quickly dampened 
it and returned to observing the curious 
oddity on the stage. 

Suddenly, amidst the cheers of the 
band, another greaser came up on stage. 
Sitzler had arrived! Maybe now the mood 
would change and everything would turn 
out right. The answer was swift in com- 
ing, No. The reactions of the crowd con- 
tinued as they had before and the Greas- 
ers were helpless to change them. 

Perhaps the Greasettes could change 
the crowd's attitude. But it soon became 
apparent that they too were caught in 
the apathetic attitude of the audience. 
There were some light spots. "Johnny 
AngeF'got a burst of laughter at the first 
sound of the "motorcycles." But after 
the first verse they reacted as if the sound 
effects were already old hat. 

Finally, after everything was over, 
the applause given to the Greasers for the 
whole act amounted to little more than 
they had been given for one song. As the 
Greasers came off the stage, Barnaby 
Plum took over. A feeling of relief went 
through the group. It had been a rough 
night. Most were glad to leave. 

In summary, what happened? Who 
was to blame? The Greasers showed that 
show business is not always a bed of ro- 
ses. Anyone can have a bad day or night. 
The only flaw in their simple plans 
was that they depended on somebody 
else to help them in their act. While faith 
in others may be one of their faults, they 
did not have much choice in their rather 
low budget operation. Perhaps in look- 
ing for a scapegoat one could reach out 
and blame reckless driving. On the night 
of April 21, 1972, car accidents claimed 
several lives on the nation's highways - 
and one concert at E-town.

Once again the end of another term 
is at hand. I won't have the opportunity 
to publish any reviews until next Sept- 
ember after this issue, so I want to cover 
a lot of ground with this final edition, 
and review as many new albums as poss- 
ible. Unfortunately, as this goes to press 
the late spring surge of album releases 
is just beginning. The albums I am about 
to review are the first of this wave of 
releases. They are by and large good al- 
bums, but the ones to come hold even 
greater promise. These include Jethro 
Tull's Thick as a Brick (released May 7, 
too late for reviewing), the latest from 
the Moodie Blues, a new release from 
Morrison-less Doors (disregarding 
Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine), their 
second "greatest hits" anthology released 
in early March), a much-rumored newie 
from T-Rex, Carl and the Passions: So 
Tough from the Beach Boys, and the 
long-awaited half-live Yes release. Add 
to these possible releases by Emerson, 
Lake, and Palmer, Blood, Sweat, and 
Tears (minus David Clay ton-Thomas and 
Fred Lipsius), George Harrison and may- 
be even James Taylor, not to mention 
the much-heralded but rather mysteri- 
ous Honkey ^Chateau from Elton John 
and the legendary Smile from Brian Wil- 
son and Van Dyke Parks, and my dilem- 
ma becomes clear. This review is falling 
about a month too soon. 

The music that has arrived is, as I 
said, for the most part good, even very 
good. Here, then, is what I have avail- 
able at press time. The bad first . . . 

Graham Nash /David Crosby (Atlan- 
tic SD 7220 0598): These two seem to 
bring out the worst in each other. Graham 
Nash is back to his sickeningly sweet 
Deja Vu style of songwriting, mixing his 
candy-coated love lollipops with a unique 
brand of pseudo-politics, while David 
Crosby rehashes the same sea and/or 
cowboy images he presented on his first 
solo shot. I refuse to buy this record; 
I've heard it about three or four times on 
FM radio and most of it makes me want 
to "fwow up." Add to this the usual su- 
perstar trip these two take (Jerry Garcia 
sticks his nose into it as much as he can) 
and the rather mandatory dedication of 
this album to Joni Mitchell (after all she 
was bedded by both of them and James 
Taylor to boot over the short span of 
nine months from approximately Sept- 
ember 1970 to June 1971) and the end 
result is yet another sugary bowl of mush 
in the folk/rock vein that reinforces my 
growing distain for acoustic guitars. If 
you must have a sample of Corsby/Nash 
music, get the single version of "Immi- 
gration Man." It is mercifully short. 
Now for the good stuff. 
Isle of View, by Jimmie Spheeris 
(Columbia C 30988): This is what the 
Crosby /Nash album should have been. 
Jovial Jimmie, branded firmly into the 
memories of those Valley-ites who at- 
tended his performance at last year's 
James Gang concert, comes up with an 
album of extremely well-done soft rock, 
because it isn't folk in the sense that 
songs like "Tom Dooley" of "If I Had 
a Hammer" are. It is not intended for the 
masses in the way that true folk music 
is; it is much too complicated for that. 
The emphasis in this album is on Jim- 
mie's tasty (if not technically proficient) 
piano and his unusual lyrics, fantastic 
and ridden with modern myth, and mer-

cifully away from the guitar strumming 
of lesser artists. To this base he has add- 
ed electric bass, flute, violin, and drums 
to create a thick, sensual sound that sat- 
isfies without overpowering. The effect 
is much like that of 'Take a Pebble" on 
the first Emerson, Lake, and Palmer al- 
bum. "The Nest" is the high point of 
this excellent package. At last, his music 
without his stage presence!! 

Live in Concert with the Edmonton 
Symphony Orchestra, by Procul Harum 
(A&M SP 4335): On this album the orig 
inal "classical rock" group attempts and 
succeeds in a medium that has made 
jackasses out of the likes of Deep Pur- 
ple's Jon Lord, Keith Emerson, and 
Pink Floyd. Unlike the above luminaries, 
however, Gary Brooker and Keith Reid 
have not plunked out a new and awk- 
wardly pretentious piece of Pop Classic- 
ism in the vein of "Five Bridges Suite" 
or "Atom Heart Mother" but have al- 
lowed the distinctly classicized elements 
in their distinctive form of pop music 
to come to the fore by scoring a batch 
of their past successes for group with 
symphonic accompaniment. At all times 
the group remains the focal point, spear- 
headed by Brooker's restrained piano sty- 
lings and his phenomenal vocals, the most 
soulful in rock. The sound is punctuated 
by Dave Ball's searing guitar (he is appro- 
priately named) and the powerful ar- 
rangement Brooker provides for the or- 
chestra. The orchestra never gets in the 
way of the group, and allows the beau- 
tiful pristine simplicity of Procol's gor- 
geous melodies to shine through unfet- 
tered. Brooker's scores are heavy on ex- 
citing rushes of strings and shocking in- 
trusions from the brass that accentuate 
the emotional strength of the included 
songs. Included in this package is a new 
but little changed version of "A Salty 
Dog,"perhaps the most beautiful song 
pop/rock has yet produced, and a stu- 
pendous "In Held 'Twas In I" complete 
with choir and thunder. This album is, 
quite simply, a must. It is so good youH 
forget it's a live album. It exudes qual- 

Freedomburger, by the New York 
Rock Ensemble (Columbia KC 31317): 
This album further underscores the redef- 
ined goals of the NYRE since the depar- 
ture of Brian Corrigan and the scotching 
of their "Bach with Rock" format (as 
well as the "& Roll" segment of their 
name) in favor of a new record company 
(they left ATCO for Columbia in 1970) 

and a new aoDroach based heavilv on 
mainstream rock and embellished by 
their Julliard training rather than justi- 
fied by it. It is a logical extension from 
the gut power trip of Roll Over\ their 
first Columbia release, but in favor of a 
grand piano and ARP synthesizer on this 
album, but the rest of the line-up is un- 
changed, mixing guitars with cello and 
oboe for a good cover of Procol Harum 's 
"A Whiter Shade of Pale" and providing 
a lush background for Kamen's "I'm 
Sending a Friend to You," the best cut 
in this solid collection of musical rock 
from a respected and vastly underrated 

Let's Make Up and Be Friendly by 
the Bonzo Dog Band (United Artists 
UAS-5584) and Just Another Band From 
L.A. by the Mothers (Bizarre/Reprise 
MS 2075): Birds of a feather are these 
two records by the vanguards of rock 
humor and satire on both sides of the 
lAtlantic. The Bonzos, reformed by Neil 
Innes and Viv Stanshall after a year's 
hiatus, are as zany as ever in the presenta- 
tion of their typically British drawing- 
room satire, notably on "Rawlinson End" 
a perfectly executed farce based on 
soap-opera drama. The new Bonzos, how- 
ever, display a gritty side on this new 
album as well, notably in the lead-off 
song, "The Strain," perhaps the first 
constipation-rock song in history. Their 
parodies of '50's dance hall ballads 
("Straight From My Heart.") and Surf 
music ("King of Scurf) place them in 
Frank Zappa territory with expected hi- 
larity. Frank, on the other hand, has a 

new band as well (only two albums old 
at this point), featuring three ex-Turtles, 
but the emphasis is not on Avant-garde 
Jazz and electronics (a la Hot Rats) but 
on the strident satire that permeated the 
first two albums by the old Mothers of 
Invention (Freak Out and Absolutely 
Free). As a result, both Live at Fillmore 
East and now Just Another Band have 
been viewed as regressions below Zappa's 
potential. The Mothers aren't as inven- 
tive any more, true (they dropped "of 
Invention" from their handle as well), 
but they are still a talented, tight band, 
musically superior to just about any other 
I can mention.. And they are quite funny 
catch "Billy the Mountain." I only hope 
Frank takes them into a studio soon and 
cuts this "live" binge he's on. This is 
a live set, but good. 

Well, that writes finis on '71-'72. 
Have a good summer.

A swing and a miss-no actually Chip Etter connects for a grounder in , 
Philo Vs. Knights intramural contest. 

Sports in Brief 

by Mike Rhodes 

By the time this article is published, 
another long year of intramurals will 
have passed into memory. As of last 
week, it still looked as though Kalo would 
again capture the coveted Supremacy 
Trophy, which would be nothing new. 
However, with softball, paddleball, ten- 
nis and wieghtlifting results still out, any- 
thing could happen. . . Hank Henckler 
led Kalo to victory in the recent track 
meet with a first in the high jump (5'8"). 
In the long jump, Henckler's 17.10" mark 
was second only to the 18 '2" recorded 
by Mike Dortch. Fine performances by 
Dortch and Tom Leach (128' in the jav- 
elin) helped the Residents to a third- 
place finish in the meet, moving them 
into second in overall points with 60, 
just ahead of Philo. Kalo, of course, leads 
with 68. The Knights' surprising second- 
place showing in the meet was marked 
by Dan Yocum's 38-foot shot-put ef- 
fort. . . Early softball games were marked 
by some high scoring, with Kalo and 
Philo heading towards their usual show- 
down. . .As of this writing, the paddle- 
ball tournament is down to Jeff "Pink" 
Floyd and Rod Shane (Residents-Com- 
muters), Greg Arnold and Doug Kramer 
of Philo, and Kalo's Howie Knudson. 

While most attention recently has 
been focused on intramurals the lacrosse 

and golf teams both finished the 
with fine records. Going into the' 
game last Saturday against Wilkes, 
Gaecklers' stickmen had registered 
wins against only three losses, th 
of these being a tough 4-2 defeat a 
hands of Lehigh. . .The golf team, f 
course, didn't lose a match in nearly a 
month after an opening double defeat, 
As a whole the squad didn't fare well in 
the MASCAC tournament, which was held 
May 1, but Jerry Frey took runner-up 
honors individually with a 143, only 
three strokes off the place. . . April 29 
saw the baseball team down Drew Univ- 
ersity 6-5 behind the pitching of Scott 
Ruehr. Any overconfidence resulting 
from this victory was dispelled the next 
week when Susquehanna routed the 
Dutchmen twice by scores of 10-1 and 
13-1. Nevertheless, the members of the 
team are looking forward to next season, 
when formal intercollegiate play will re- 
place the present club set-up. . .Also 
looking forward to next year, under- 
standably, are the members of the LVC 
track team, which (despite a close call 
against F & M) failed to win a meet all 
season. If it's any consolation, Washing- 
ton College tied Valley for last place in 
the MAC College Division championships. 
Since the squad is loaded with under- 
classmen, things should be better next 
spring. At any rate, one can always hope.
